Aussie Weather by FuntopiaTV
We are a small multimedia company based in Melbourne, Australia. Our projects range from mobile app development, ecommerce sites and social media campaigns. We like to have fun, and on the odd day you will find developers filling each others offices with balloons or turning them into tropical getaways.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The app is designed for Android users in Australia and its territories. As people from all ages and backgrounds may be using the app, and they may only be in it for a few seconds at a time, the icons need to quickly and clearly display the weather condition expected for that day.
In a nutshell, we are after 15 weather icons. These need to cover the following weather conditions:
- Partly cloudy
- Light rain
- Light showers.
(examples of these can be seen here: http://www.bom.gov.au/NexGenFWS/icontable.shtml )
The icons should be clean & elegant. A user must be able to know what the weather is forecast to be like just by looking at it.
Icons using vector shapes are preferred. Android recommends designing on a board of 864x864; however, these icons will be used at sizes of 72x72 and below. Android icon design guidelines are here: http://developer.android.com/guide/…esign-tips
The attached image is a design we liked on another site, however, it did not contain all the conditions we required. The icons should not have a shadow underneath.
A creative, elegant and clean design will make your submission standout.
