How Ixokai started their button or icon journey

Company name

Ixokai Softworks

Overview

I'm a lone little software developer who loves food, loves cooking, and loves technology -- and has an idea to meld the two together in a fun little way. Only problem? My design-fu is weak.

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

Typical iUsers: tech-savvy with an eye for elegance and things that just work and work simply at that.

Requirements

***PLEASE NOTE***: I decided to extend the contest an additional day to give recent additions a fair shake. Technical difficulties made it hard for me to give feedback in a timely matter to recent additions, so I want those people to have a chance to respond.

I am NOT going to consider new entries to the contest. This is only to get some final revisions form folks who deserve a chance to respond to my feedback to their designs.

I'm looking for an icon which should have a somewhat distinctive style, but still be pretty simple in the detail.

A chef's hat would be pretty cliche, so I want to avoid that: something that says 'cooking' and 'tools' at once would be ideal. A bowl of food with a spoon in it, or a frying pan superimposed beside a whisk. Something foody.

But there should also be an element of technology-- but something as simple as a kitchen timer would be just fine.

Technically, it needs to be a vector graphic that can scale and still look decent from sizes 512x512 to 57x57 (... that crazy odd number baffles me). SVG or Adobe Illustrator formats accepted.

I have no preference towards color scheme or even the artistic style of the illustration-- something that feels crisp and elegant and distinctive is all I'm after.

REMINDER: As I said above, Chef's hats are not something I'm interested in. Please don't waste your creative talent with hat-designs that I have to feel bad about eliminating :)
