We need an iPhone app icon. The app is called Mindfull Meal Tracker because it's designed to help you eat more mindfully (help with portion control and eating quality food).
We have created a simple photo diary format so there's no need to log every bite like traditional calorie trackers.
As for the icon's design style, we'd like it to fit in with the attached app designs, but it could pop a bit more than our typical "iconic" flat design icon style since it'll be iPhone-only, so feel free to play around with flat or more 3D styles if you'd like.
We don't like skeumorphism, but in general the ideas of the camera, journal/diary (book, ribbon/bookmark, etc) and food/meals/utensils, or even something with the idea of mindfulness, could be played up to make the icon more eye-catching.
Examples of icons that pull off a pretty good balance between eye-grabbing and overdone are Planner Pro and Camera+.
Icon ideas to play around with:
- Camera body (black or dark gray) like camera apps, with circles for the lens that look like a dinner plate, with utensils/food inside.
- Gridlines making squares (maybe 3x3?) like our Journal view layout and like the ones shown on the screen when taking a picture (for the rule of thirds). Could even be similar to a collage or Diptic, with utensils/food in each square, or one item split between the grid.
