Content details


For an upcoming Android application we require an Application Launch icon, Notification icon plus Promotional and Feature graphics for the Android Play Store (i.e Marketplace). They all should be in the same graphic style, hence this being listed as a single job.

The Application:
The Lunch $ Monitor is an Android 2.3 and up mobile application that allows end users to connect to back-end school systems to get their account information as well as full itinerary on what has been purchased for a specific period of time. The application also has a monitoring aspect where the application will periodically check various account properties and based on user configurable settings, it will alert the user to changes via a notification in the Android status bar.

The icon and graphics should cater towards the end users which will be primarily students and their parents/guardians.
