Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We have built a tool that allows users - focused on creative professionals - to create their own native iPad portfolio app. Here is the web site - http://www.appafolio.com. Users can create a custom portfolio with photo galleries, slideshows, videos and about text with contact information and links. Users can customize all aspects of their portfolio - the order of the 'screens' within the app, the icon, background images, splash screens and all the content - photos and videos.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We want to produce an icon that tells potential users what 'Appafolio' does. We want our icon to be amazing, best of breed, to be featured on this list - http://www.iosinspires.me/category/appicons/ - We want the icon to look like a tablet/iPad-ish but not exactly with graphical images on it that illustrate what it does. We want it to look somewhat realistic.
The final deliverables will be an icon optimized for the various Apple App Store sizes = 512x512, 114x114, 72x72 and 57x57. For more information on icon sizes for Apple, please review: http://developer.apple.com/library/…mages.html
We are targeting designers, photographers - creative professionals, so the design of the icon needs to be beautiful.
