Working with Dee was a great experience. She was responsive and willing to continue to make modifications to her designs until we got exactly what we were looking for. All the designers worked really hard, but Dee's work ethic stood out above the rest.

Very communicative and open to feedback!! Reygie Selma even went above and beyond to create a new font for this contest, which blew my hair back. High quality graphics and smooth attention to detail...a definite three tusks up ;)

How Devlink started their icon or button journey
Who are you known as?
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Devlink develops and maintains an ERP for software for companies producing clothing, an ERP for companies producing marble quartz tiles, an ERP for companies producing colors for wall painting and finally a general-purpose ERP. All the software shares the same framework and graphical aspect.
Those ERP runs all day and manage most aspects for the company work: Orders, production planning, warehouse and stock, supply chain, invoicing etc.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We need a renewed Icon for our products.
We would like the icons to be slightly different for every application. For example, different colors or a different element. Basically ONLY ONE Icon for all apps with little differences (colors or something else)
Be creative and design icons that will identify an ERP-System on a desktop. The icon has to stand out from others icon. Usually users have tons of icons on their desktops and our icon has to stick out a bit, so the app is easily founded.
Probably we will soon release applications on mobile devices. It should be great to use the same icons, if possible.
Our software are identified by name: GLT, GSI, GSA. (also identified as G-Series)
Our software are appreciated to be extremely flexible and to increase the integration and the speed of company processes (this can be an idea for the design).
We r expecting something not too complicated. maybe in a rounded rectangle as slack or evernote icon or as icons used in iphone apps. an icon in a rectangle is probably more visible on a computer desktop cause users usually have a photo on the background. I see many applications now has that type of icon (easeus backup, splashtop, steam etc.). For the icon we would prefer a rounded design instead of squared... sorry we r not designers... dont know if its clear: better curves instead of angles-
We are not attaching the actual icons to not influence new design.
The needed dimensions for the icons are all the ones used in windows:
16x16 (this icon, as our actual icon, can be simplified due to low resolution)
24x24 (this icon, as our actual icon, can be simplified due to low resolution)
We would like to receive the images also in ICO format (if possible)
The icons are to be used to launch our software from any windows-based desktop. (from desktop, start menu, taskbar, new windows 10 start menu, windows 8 tiles etc)
Our customers use Windows 7 / 8 / 10.
Actually, we are using the same icon (designed more than 15 years ago) for all the applications using different colors.
Our software are identified by name: GLT (for clothing), GSI (for marble), GSA (for colors), DG (general purpose)
