I want a new app icon especially designed for Android. It should follow the Android app icon design best practices:
Specifically, it should *not* be square, and should *not* imitate the iOS icon style! I also think it would be best if it was quite different to the Google Maps icon that most devices already have.
I would like to incorporate our 3-flag logo (attached) in some way. Either verbatim, or just with the 3 flags and a connected line integrated into the design.
One idea I have is:
• The icon base is an historical style nautical map.
• The map feels a little bit 3D (as per the Android guidelines)
• The Geospike 3-flag logo is overlaid prominently on the map.
I have attached a rough sketch of this idea "GeospikeAndroidIconIdeas_1.jpg". It will need to be adapted to suit the Android style.
I'm happy to see any other ideas too!
Final delivery must be in vector format.
EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: please just use 3 flags with a connected line on the map icon and don't use any "pin" or a "tear drop marker" map marker styles (as seen on Google Maps, Apple Maps, etc) – the flag is a very key part of our brand. However– you CAN modify the style, you don't have to use "3-flag_logo-final.ai" directly as it probably doesn't suit the android style.
