We require an icon logo design for the icon set of our Android Application.
The icon set is as follows:
- Launcher icon
- Notification Icon.
- Google Play icon
The icon will be based upon the company's logo you will find attached in this project.
We need no wording for this logo icon. The icon must feature an image that represents the company.
We require a glossy and "with some depth" image for the icon. It may have some optional slight bezel above that gives a 3D appearance to it. This last is optional.
You can check the image attached to this project with some Android icon samples.
We require a person with experience in icon design. Icons must be extremely well defined.
Android has a well documented guide for Iconography and this can be found here:

The selected designer will be asked to read this guide if she/he hasn't yet done so.
The Launcher Icon
The final delivery for the launcher icon must be in the following sizes:
The original image must be larger than any of the formats above so it is flexible enough to be scaled up or down.
Any Bitmap layer when scaled must be drawn again at that specific scale dimension. If the layer is vectorized it won't require re-drawing. But if
any layer is a Bitmap it is mandatory to re-create that particular layer for that specific scale.
If we verify that some layer has blur or poor definition we will ask the designer to re-draw that particular image again.
The notification icon is a white image representation of the same icon launcher. This image will be represented against a black background so it needs to be all white.
See the image attached to this project to see some samples for notification icons.
We require the final notification icon in the following sizes:
- 24x24px (optical square of 22)
- 36x36px (optical square of 33)
- 48x48px (optical square of 44)
- 72x72px (optical square of 66)
The optical square concept is explained in the iconography link I provided above from the Android Developer guide online.
Google Play Icon
The Google Play icon will be the same image as the Launcher Icon but in the following size: 512x512px.
