Design brief

Organization name

UCD Consulting Limited

Description of business

User experience consultancy

Organization industry



We are creating a free app for the iPhone. The working title of the app is the "Earning Timer".

The app is essentially a stop watch which, as well as showing the time passed it also specifies how much money the user is earning whilst the timer is running.

Since this is an iPhone app icon, the icon produced needs to be translatable in all the desired sizes (see…on-sizes/)

The final deliverable should be 512 x 512 and must be vector based.

With the exception of the following, feel free to be creative:

- Since this could be made available in multiple territories, the icon should avoid currency symbols, e.g. £, $, € etc.

- A serious as opposed to humorous tone is preferred.

Further requirements

A lot of whats being submitted is quite elaborate for such small real estate. Consider a simple approach (silhouette) like the 'Keep Calm and Carry on On' signs from WW2. Attached is a simple layout idea, i.e. a money bag infront of a stop watch (although the bag should not contain a currency symbol)
