How Jay8888 started their button or icon journey

Company name

PBS Wishing

Overview

I am an independent android phone application developer. I have developed a free application called PBS Wishing which is available on the Android market (Search for "summet" or "PaperBackSwap"). The application allows users to key in the ISBN number of a book (Or use the phone's camera to scan the barcode) to find out how many people are "wishing" for the book on the paperbackswap.com website. (Note: I am NOT directly affiliated with PaperBackSwap.com!)

I'm tired of the boring/simple icon I made for the application, so I've decided to sponsor this contest. I am also willing to give the icon author credit in the applications "about" screen.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

People with Android Phones who also use the PaperBackSwap.com website.

Requirements

The Icon:

1. It must NOT use the term "PaperBackSwap". (PBS is ok!)

2. It must conform to the standard Android Phone Icon design guidelines as outlined here:
http://developer.android.com/guide/…esign.html

3. Must be delivered in the following sizes: 512x512, 72x72, 48x48, and 36x36. [The 512x512 size is for the android market, the other sizes are actually used by the application on the phone. I am open to having the 512x512 icon be somewhat different (more detailed) than the smaller versions, but this is not a requirement.]

4. The icon should represent the functionality of the program: (Looking up books, reporting the number of people wishing for the book on PBS, etc)

Guidelines: I would like the icon to use a similar color set to the Paperbackswap.com website (modified to meet the Android Icon UI guidelines above), but want it's design to be different enough so that I'm not stepping on any of their copyrights. I would like to keep the text on the icon to a minimum, or even not have any at all. If you want to put text on it, things such as "PBS" or "Wishing" would be acceptable.

Prefer .SVG format delivery, will accept .png at appropriate resolutions

Attached Files:
icon.png - existing basic icon (don't like!)
pbsnew.bmp - contributed icon (Like the stack of books, don't like the text)
