Twigs is a location-based photo sharing iOS app for private events. It can be used for private parties, weddings, concerts, family get-togethers, etc.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need an iOS app icon that conveys the idea of location-based photos. My app will be using green (hex color #00B200) as one of its main color, so usage of this in the icon would be good, but not a strict requirement. The color scheme will stay simple: mostly white backgrounds, green tint (see above hex color) and black text. I'll need this icon in all the sizes required for iPhone and iPad apps (see Apple Human Interface Guide). My app will use push notifications and so the smaller-sized version of the app icon must be discernible.
I have a vision of a twig sticking out of the ground with a polaroid picture attached to it. (See attached sketches). That said, this might be too detailed, not discernible enough, with smaller icon sizes for push notifications. So maybe a more abstract representation of location-based event photo sharing would be better. I'd prefer something "sketchy", cute, or cartoon-like instead of a professional/serious looking icon. I've also attached a screenshot of the app's "home feed", which shows the tab bar colors/design at the bottom.
