UPDATE: We'd like to focus on the idea of the eye for the design. The idea is that eye is looking at something bright, vibrant and dynamic. Take a look at some of the eye close-ups for inspiration (or Google 'eye macro')
The eye should be well designed enough that it looks almost natural, as opposed to an over simplified eye icon. We do not want the whole eye just focus on the iris - like the blue iris design below, except with more colour.
I'd suggest using Illustrator to create organic looking shapes and copy/rotating it around the circle. An example .AI is attached - this is my basic outline effort - I'm hoping you can do much better.
Experiment with the suggested colour spectrum to find a combination that works.
Thanks everyone for your entries so far we wanted to give you the option to suggest new ideas, although we haven't yet received anything strong enough so we have honed in on this idea.
Good luck :)
The into it app has a tinder style interface of images and shortform video & sound. You swipe through the feed and favourite artists you like. The app recommends local gigs and events that you'll be in to.
The wining designer will be not be forgotten when our app team grows. Be creative. Be awesome.
