How QD Ideas started their logo design journey

Company name

GreenThumb

Overview

We are a small iPhone application development team with great coding skills but seriously lacking in Illustrator talent! We've written a fun game for the iPhone and need a little artwork that is as awesome as we think the game is.

We're making an iPhone game titled GreenThumb and need a beautiful screen design to use when the game loads and an application icon tied into that design. The game involves flower blossoms, a few of which would look great in the design.

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

Our target demographic is wide as this is a game that will appeal to most age groups, perhaps a little more female than male. Our game will appeal even to those who've never played a video game before, so elements that are meaningful only to hardcore gamers wouldn't be beneficial. We'd love to attract everyone to take a look at our game and your design will be their first impression.

Requirements

We require 3 things:

1)The elements of an iPhone application's loading page (displayed while the application is loading) in an AI file. These consist of the application's name (GreenThumb) and several flowers (the daisy shape lends itself to the game). We will place these elements over a grassy background image (http://www.qdideas.com/projects/gt/…dscape.png). These elements need to fit in a 480x320 pixel aspect ratio, landscape oriented space.

2) An iPhone application icon taken from the loading page
57x57 pixels with square corners
72dpi, RGB, no transparency, 24 bit PNG
No shine or gloss

3) The same icon image, 512x512 pixels with square corners
72dpi, RGB, no transparency, AI format

The game primarily uses the Komika Display Caps Wide font. Making the design compatible (not necessarily identical) with this look would be optimal. A sample of the game's text is available: http://www.qdideas.com/projects/gt/…letext.png. In the game, the font is used tightly kerned with a fairly thick black stroke around the text. The ability to easily alter the fill color of the text would rock.

A glossy, 3D rounded appearance of the logo would be a lovely contrast to the natural photograph of grass behind it.

Adjectives describing the design: clean, glossy, happy, relaxing, fun, bright, plump

Don't wants: No thumbs! :-) No need to have any "loading..." text.
