Design brief

Organization name

AllStays LLC

Description of business

A 12 year old travel guide website that also does mobile apps. A big focus is on truck driver services and this app has done okay.

Organization industry

Travel & Hotel


AllStays Truck and Travel is a universal travel app for drivers on the road. It provides mapping and information for all kinds of truck services, truck stops, low clearances and more. It is the most comprehensive app of it's kind. The app icon added company name and website "AllStays" to the official title for branding. Over time, it has become known as "AllStays Truck & Travel". Although it stands out on the icon home screens, I have never really liked all the text the way it is and feel it can be made better. I want more like something Apple would do for their own stuff. But because of the way it evolved, I still think the brand should be in the icon. I don't have a recognizable logo for that alone so anything is possible with that. The rest is wide open for design and readability. Guidelines: Try to include "AllStays" if possible since that is not in the app title. Keep all icon sizes and rounded corners in mind.

I need the end file to be at least 1024x1024 px and EPS would be best, vector based so it can be used for the future. A PSD format would also be nice and the more layers the better for control or any future device sizing. Larger is fine but it needs to fit nicely for all the various app icon sizes below. All the various possible sizes this is made into for apps: 57x57 px, 114 px, 72 px, 144 px, 29 px, 58 px, 48 px, 96 px, 512 px, 1024 px

Attached is the current boring text icon. Also attached is the newly designed icon for another app of ours. This could be used for the font (ask about particulars on that) or ideas for what we liked for that icon.
