How GuruliciousLife started their button or icon journey

Company name

QuoteGuru

Overview

i'm a startup co.
trying the iOS market.

i need an iPad app icon please.

for a Quotation app.

thanks for your interest.

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

anyone who likes quotes or quotations (as in saying, proverbs etc. not stock quotes or job quotes : )

so it can be any age audience, any culture. young to old should be able to recognize symbol.

Requirements

LOOK:
- sensual, emotional, vibrational, sexy (in abstract way : )
- light, friendly, joyful, deliciously edible, inspiring!
- naturally elegant, simple but sophisticated
- see attached competition. icons are ugly in all senses, color, symbol, layout etc. just added file so you do not waste your time in wrong direction : )
please use your creativity to be different.

SYMBOL:
- relate icon to quotes, what people say
- don't just take it literal i.e. with quotation symbol, be original, maybe use mouth as symbol...

DETAIL:
- make icon simple enough to be instantly recognizable and relatable to quotes
- create enough detail to intrigue if icon is use in print or blown up, so it does not look too bland
- make simplified version for small size and in-app user interface logo

ELEMENTS:
- slick but organic (not stiff, maybe newage-y is fine : )
- visually stunning, different
- texture
- depth/hole
- use shadows
- glow
- reflections
- transparency
- more glassy than metallic
- as colorful as you wish (colors evoke emotion well...)

SIZE:
final output should be for app icon but also print.
after all your hard work on icon, imagine if need to blow it up: i can't get back to you, so please design right from start, in hi-res. you can do comps in low res for speed, but if chosen for final design, please create full res.

winning final format:
- vector (ai or freehand)
- plus layered psd, 300 dpi, min. 6000 pixels
- no clip art / all original

if i love your work, there's more!
