Entry #166 - Button & icon design - by akaVanyok

Managed Phone Solutions picked a winning design in their button or icon contest

For just $295, they received 168 designs from 40 designers.

Having used various "Get-a-freelancer" sites, I put 99designs well above others. This is the reason for it (rather 2 reasons): 1. Phenomenal site structure, well thought, rich and flexible 2. Phenomenal support (I mostly used chat). Specifically, I would like to mention: - immediate access - friendly and (oh gosh, it has happened in my life!!!) knowledgeable personnel, who have the authority to make decisions and brains to use this authority. Thank you, 99designs — Alexten

Design brief

Organization name

Managed Phone Solutions

Description of business

we develop apps for mobile devices

Organization industry



we need a set of four identical icons (96 x 96 ;72×72,48x48, 36×36. )
For this contest entry just one resolution- is suffice (72x72). If you win the contest, i will ask you to provide 3 others,

The application name is SavvyTone. Currently it only runs on Android platform.
SavvyTone provides users with very simple `list of contacts (see enclosed picture) for easy dialing . A typical example would be a son, who install Savvytone on his mom's Smartphone, because she has trouble using phone's build-in dialer (small print, confusing menus etc.) Moreover, via our web service son can make changes in mom's contact list, change phone's settings etc. The same idea can be used for child's phone, hence ideally the icon should reflect the concept of remote management, Though this requirement is not mandatory (see Evernote, for example)


Pict1 - SavvyTone application

Pict3 - my own proposal. you better come with your original ideas, otherwise i may ask you for my cut :)
