Design brief

Organization name


Description of business

Slate is a Mac OS X window tiling application that helps users manage windows and applications and create a clean desktop and screen setup.

Organization industry



I need a 512x512 application icon designed. I prefer something simple and clean. I want something greyscale/black/silver with maybe a hint of blue. The color "slate" (bluish dark grey) would be ideal. The icon needs to convey "window management" or something of the sort. It can even be a simple picture of a window (Mac OS X window). I've attached the current application icon (icon.icns).

I would also like a 20x20 status bar icon (icon that shows up near the top-right of the mac menu bar) that coincides with the application icon but is *much* simpler and is greyscale (transparent background, black or dark grey design). I've attached the current status bar icon (status.png).

Further requirements

Again, I prefer something simple and clean. Nothing overcomplicated please!
