Just two guys who have an idea for an app. Between us we can write and code, but need help with the creative design.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
This app should appeal to anyone looking for a new special someone. It's not a traditional dating service, but may appeal to that same audience.
It may skew towards a younger demographic (16-25), but should not be so "teen-focused" as to alienate older users.
It will target both males and females, so should not contain too much pink, red or other "girlie" colors.
The theme should combine "love" (such as a heart) and "secret" (such as a locket, padlock, key, etc.).
The app will initially target iPhones, but will be extended to Android devices at some point.
We need an icon for a mobile app that will be used in a manner similar to a match finder such as Zoosk, though with a much more tasteful approach. The design should feel romantic and sophisticated, with the idea being that the app is used to find that one special person, not a date for Friday night.
There is no color palette defined yet, but the winning selection will likely be used to inform the other collateral.
The final submission should be delivered via .SVG, .AI, or high-resolution .PSD. The dimensions of the icon should be at least 512x512, and still be legible when scaled down to 57x57 (to support the spectrum of iPhone icons).
