We've been making sync software for the Mac for a while now, but this will be the first tool we've created that is designed specifically for Mac and Windows computers to share data easily.
This application helps Mac & Windows computers talk to each other and share data more efficiently. It's supposed to be very easy for even computer novices to learn and use, so the icon(s) should reflect this simplicity.
With this product, we are trying to reach the least software-savvy, most novice of consumers. That's why we've chosen a name (PlayNice) that says nothing about synching, data, operating systems, etc.
This software and brand should suggest that it's easy enough for your grandmother to use.
In all, I will need:
- 1 Mac application icon. (512x512)
- 1 Windows application icon. (Ideally the same as the Mac icon.)
- 4 or more smaller images (20 x 20) which will comprise a Mac menu bar/Windows taskbar animation sequence, visible whenever the app is "thinking".
I would prefer art that emphasizes the "play nice" theme rather than art that emphasizes the Mac/Windows/computers/sharing/data aspects. Remember that this should be approachable and friendly right from the start (that is, the icon).
Final product(s) should be in a vector format, preferably PSD files along with icns, ico, etc. files.
