How llindsell started their button or icon journey
We are a bootstrapped web startup that is launching a platform to create prediction games for a variety of sports and sports teams. Our games will be played through Facebook initially, but also eventually on the web, iphone, etc.
This project is for the initial set of badges we are going to launch with, but we plan on adding additional badges to the game and creating new badge sets for new games down the road. Therefore we'd like a designer we can have an ongoing relationship with if possible.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The target audience for the badges will be Facebook users who are sports fans. A key component of our game will be earning badges which users will post to their Facebook stream.
We really love the simplicity and vibrant colors of the badges created by Foursquare and want to create our own unique set of a similar style. If you are not familiar with the Foursquare badges, please check out these links:
COMPETING DESIGNERS ONLY NEED TO CREATE THE FIRST 6 BADGES. AFTER A WINNER IS SELECTED, THEY CAN CREATE THE REMAINING 14 BADGES IN THE SAME STYLE.
The final badges will be delivered in PNG formart with transparency around the badge. All badges need to be delivered in these 6 sizes:
The suggested colors of each badge below can be tweaked by the designer if they think a different color combo will work better.
