Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We produce applications for mobile devices with our current focus on iPhone and iPad platforms.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We have an app called Pocket Health that we would like an icon designed for. Pocket Health is like having your full medical record in your pocket.
The general design that we have been thinking about is one using a lab coat pocket, shirt pocket, etc. as a main design element. Adding additional detail to the pocket either with something on the pocket (cross, RX symbol, etc.) or something in the pocket that is healthcare related such as the end of a stethoscope, would help drive the overall idea of the app.
Pocket Health is a personal health record app that ties into Google Health for tracking and managing health data. The app presents prescription data, lab test data, key metrics and vitals, etc which feeds to GoogleHealth from a large number of pharmacies, physicians, and hospitals.
The icon will be used for the main iPhone app icon as well as being displayed in the app store.
