How ConfusedVorlon started their button or icon journey

Company name

EyeBrowse - Hobbyist Software

Overview

I'm a solo application developer with a handful of applications selling on iPhone, and WebOS.

Hobbyist Software came about as I started coding for a hobby. I still code because I enjoy it - and try to create apps that provide great value.

Working in the iPhone world has made it even more important that those apps look fantastic!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

iPhone and iPod Touch users who want a web browser that has a stronger visual appeal.

e.g. where the built in browser shows bookmarks as a boring table - eyeBrowse shows them as a set of images in a coverflow style.

this app doesn't add a lot of new functionality to the browser - it is mostly about making it more pleasing to use, and adding some visual flair.

The folks who will care about this are the folks who will respond to a great icon!

Requirements

* Application icon

57 x 57 pixels with 90 degree corners
No shine; no gloss
Does not use alpha transparency
(Apple will ultimately add the glass overlay and rounded corners)

* AppStore icon

512 x 512 pixel version of Application icon
"subtly richer and more detailed" than Application icon

So the image needs to work well in the small format with apple's glass overlay and rounded corners - and it also needs to be dramatic when blown up large.

I'm looking for an icon that:
-plays with the name eyeBrowse
-gives some indication that it is a web browser (ideally)
-is dramatic
-is serious and functional as opposed to cartoony fun
-Looks fantastic.

You can see my existing icons at http://www.HobbyistSoftware.com
I like the 'light on dark' style of some of those - I think it works well on the iPhone, but I'm not completely committed to it.

possible ideas to get started ; manga eye, night time globe, eyebrow...

Files required:
-source files (ideally .psd)
-png in both sizes

I'm very happy to give credit to the designer with a logo / link to your site in the application credits page.
