Design brief

Organization name

Polygon by

Description of business

Develops iPad and iPhone apps for engineers that I would have loved to have when I did classical engineering.

Organization industry



An icon for the iPad app Polygon - a 3D model viewer for engineers.

The colors of the icon should match or somehow fit to the rest of the app, screenshots here: (apologies for the design)

The models to be viewed are Finite Element models (try google them) which have a characteristic meshed pattern and faceted surfaces (instead of smooth) the icon could show a P (for Polygon) designed like this or some other simple 3D shape.

Further requirements

I like simple icons with a distinct shape that can be recognized even when the icon is very small inside a folder, but that has details that appear and look beautiful when the icon is huge in the App Store.

I like the 3D effect on the icons from Autodesk:…45820?mt=8
