Design brief

Organization name

iOS app

Description of business

We are a software-development studio for mobile applications. Our primary platform is iOS.

Organization industry



For an upcoming iOS app we need a simple and delightful icon which we can use as the main artwork for the app on the home screen and in iTunes. The app is a special twitter client which is all about consuming the timeline in more organized way. 

The icon should look elegant and not cheap. Less is more. Please do not use text on the icon.

As the final version we need the icon as a layered psd (rgb) (1024x1024) without rounded corners (they will be clipped by apple).

Please do not use stock images or clip art.

Be aware that the icon will be also used on the home screen of the iPhone. Therefore the size will be 57x57 pixels there. 

All copyrights must be hold by the designer.

Some really great icons with excellent quality:
