pixilated is a World Class designer. I've tried looking for local designers in my area, but it was tough to find the talent I was looking for. pixilated was able to do everything I had hoped for and exceeded all expectations. I am simply amazed at the quality, and the detail of his work and the speed he can do it. It was a pleasure to work with him.
We are a software company specialized on developing iPhone apps. Especially in the field of mobile maps and tour guides.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
iPhone and iPod touch users pretty much everbody. Preferred audience however are people travelling a lot to different cities. Or user which need an offline map in theire home town (iPod touch users).
We need a new main icon for our "City Maps 2Go" iPhone app. See our website to see the current icon (http://www.ulmon.com) and logos of other apps.
What we like about the current icon:
- the map
- something symbolizing 2go (in this case the coffee cup)
What we don't like:
- it is not shinny enough
- it looks blurry on the small screen
What does the app do:
City Maps 2 Go is a perfect application for tourists on city trips and locals who need an offline-available, quick and cost-effective map on their iPhone and iPod Touch. City Maps 2 Go is not limited to one city. Pay just once for the application and you will download maps for a constantly growing number of cities at no additional charges.
iPhone logos have a mask auto-applied by the OS to generate the “gloss” and rounded-rectangle effect. This is an optional thing; we can disable it if it gets in the way of the design, but the rounded-rectangle is a requirement.
The icon needs to look good at 512x512 and 57x57. The former is displayed in the iTunes store, and the latter is displayed on the home screen.
