Carlos was very responsive and provided a lot of suggestions on how to turn our ideas into icons. He was very patient as we went through rounds of internal feedback with our team and made revisions quickly. I would definitely recommend Carlos for your next digital illustration project.
You're the best. Thanks for the quick turn around.
How tomtasche started their icon or button journey
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Food & Drink
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
It's an app (for Android) which shows you pictures of food served in restaurants around you. The main point about this app is that it doesn't show you more-or-less meaningless pictures of the restaurant (i.e. the building, the guests, etc), but the actual food they serve. Because why would I decide on a restaurant based on the building? I'm hungry and want to eat great food, not look at great buildings with an empty stomach.
Screenshot: current prototype without any branding whatsoever. It currently does *not* display pictures of food only, but simply the first picture taken from Foursquare... But I think you get the idea.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I don't have a specific icon in mind that I want to see designed. This might make the task a lot harder - or a lot easier for you...
My first thought was something with a radar ("a radar for food"), but radar's are not a good icon I guess. Maybe a radar in shape of a pizza? Everyone loves pizza!
Other than that, I mostly see something related to burgers when thinking about a possible icon - but maybe that's just me loving burgers.
please try to keep it in line with the Android design guidelines (e.g. transparent background preferred, no glossy parts, etc)
