How paul65 started their button or icon journey

Summary

I have an existing website (http://www.xoods.com) where you can see I use a HUGE chart as a dummy placeholder/icon for users to click through to the real thing. I need to replace this with a smaller icon.

UDPATE (10/16 7AM ET) I am fairly sure I have what I need now so will be closing the contest tonight at 9PM ET

UDPATE (10/16 9PM ET) No more entries please. I am waiting for a final change to an entry at which point I will announce the winner.

Company name

Xoods.com

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

Ihave been using a static stock chart as a placeholder/icon for users to click on when they need to access the real chart. It is, unsurprisingly, causing confusion with some not aware they were supposed to click on it. You can see it many times at http://www.xoods.com, it is the chart listed many times that looks identical.

Wants

- I am open in terms of size but am looking for something a lot smaller than the current chart
- It needs to convey two things; first that it needs to be clicked for the user to open a chart for that post ; second, that the item to be viewed once this is clicked will be a stock chart
- UPDATE PLEASE READ! I am now thinking the size should be something like the red button in this link (http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/output.gif)UDPATE (10/16 7AM ET) I am fairly sure I have what I need now so will be closing the contest tonight at 9PM ET

Don't want

- this needs to be fairly conservative so no cartoons etc.
- Don't copy the current skin. This is the default Wordpress skin and will be changed at some point SOON. So, make sure your design is fairly easily integrated with fdifferent color schemes. I have no issue returning to you to have it recolored etc for some nominal sum.
