Face to Place
We are TouchME - Touch Mobile Expertise, a two-man Australian mobile-app developer gig. Graduates in Business and Software Engineering, we have completed contract iPhone development work for various clients and now intend to dominate the mobile-apps industry with our own ideas.
While we can't give out too much information, our first offering as the company TouchME will be a cutting edge, first of its kind, iPhone application. We intend to market globally in a number of languages over various communication channels.
The winning design will be the first thing people will see when visiting our webpage, viewing our app YouTube videos, downloading our app on the Apple App store or reading our app reviews.
We are looking to build a strong relationship with the winning designer, informing them of the progress of our app and offering future work.
Our target audience are young (18-35) socially active people who love going out and meeting new people.
This project is to develop an 57x57 resolution app icon, and a 480x320 background/splash screen which will be the same design blown out.
The design should be derived directly from the brand name - "Face to Place". The 'Face' element should be a woman's face - and the 'Place' element should be a globe. We already have a fairly good idea of how we want the design to look:
1. Taking up most of the screen will be a line drawing (cartoon but not disproportionate) drawing of a young woman's face, hair and neckline. Needs to be very seductive. Preferably after dark hair and big brown eyes (see example). This is the most important part of the icon and should take up 90% of your time. Nothing 'cutesy', we are after a woman's face.
2. In the top right-hand corner we're after part of a anime/cartoon style globe, set to the background (behind the young woman's face). Rich blues and green for colours. Only needs to be simple, with most of the globe out of screen.
3. As for background colours, possibly a blue, but post a few different options.
4. Formats - a "layered RGB file" in PSD and/or PNG format, and JPEG.
Examples of what we're after (for inspiration, not to copy):

The winning icon design will receive worldwide recognition and will be great addition to your portfolio!
