Organization industry



This project is for man who have difficulties approaching women.
I have created a psychological based course system to overcome this within 21 days.
I have developed an iphone app with this course system.

For this app I need an icon design.

This should convey the following:
- purpose of app must be clear - approaching women/gaining confidence
- harmonize with whole design theme
- must be intriguing and raise curiosity, maybe even a bit funny
- glossy, hd
- keep target group in mind (men from 18-45 y)
- refer to general design requirements:
The focus group are men from 18 to 45 years of age with the need of approaching or getting to know women, of wanting to gain confidence and better appearance.
The UI should be self understanding, simplistic, easy and elegant. I want a classy, polished, glossy, sleek design. With this course the customer will gain confidence and will approach women and loose his fear of approaching. I would like it to be masculin, cool, promising yet tough. Imagine you yourself should buy this app. How would you design that?

There are numerous possibilities:
- either something very specific like a girl from behind on a street (see app icon maybe) wearing something pic
- or just a letter (like in the other demos)
- attached you will find a screenshots of the momentarily look and feel inside the app. i am tending to change this to lighter blue/purple colors

The current icons are somewhat ok, but I am looking for something that symbolizes better and conveys what the course is about more emotionally.

All in all I am open for creative suggestions

Thanks a lot already in advance

Further requirements

Think about someone you know who might actually profit from such a course and think about how you would address him icon-ographically ;)
