I'll be using this icon for an iPhone app, and also for Mac and Windows applications.
--- key messages
the icon needs to work both for children (who are being monitored) and parents (who are doing the monitoring). It needs to be:
It should convey the idea of something monitoring/watching
It might use the idea of a computer being monitored (but that might make the icon too complex)
I'm looking for something that is simple and iconic - not too fussy or complex.
You can see my existing apps here
I'll give a slight preference to icons that are somewhat similar in style to my existing icons; But the most important factor is the quality of the icon as it stands by itself.
You can re-use the chrome from my other apps (attached to the project) if you think it creates a good icon, but this is definitely NOT a requirement.
It needs to handle a range of sizes from
512*512 px for the apple store
various iPhone icon sizes
and really tiny icons for the menubar/taskbar on mac/windows
I'll also be using the icon in the mac and windows taskbars - so it needs to be flexible and self-contained!
this probably needs two versions; the large version with sufficient detail and richness to work at 512, and a slightly simpler version of the same icon for the really small versions.
---- source requirements
I'm expecting to get the full .psd source (or equivalent in your design app)
