How Julio Barros started their button or icon journey
Pikes Peak Viewer / E-String Technologies Inc.
I’m creating an interactive media reader for the iPad. Think of it as an ebook reader for interactive publications. It will allow you to play videos, sounds, animations in response to user actions. I foresee it being used to create interactive children’s books, how-to books, cook books, catalogs, brochures, pamphlets, etc.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The working name for the project the generic reader is “Pikes Peak Viewer” (PPV). Eventually it will be rebranded into sub projects such as a kids book reader, or the how to reader. I’m looking for an icon that connotes both books and mountains, especially Pikes Peak in Colorado.
The reason for choosing the Pikes Peak mountain for the working name and icon (for now) is that I live in Colorado (an important point when I talk to people about it) and mountains connote views, achievement, inspiration, being on top etc.
I think that an abstract icon would be better than realistic.
