Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Home cooks (subscribers to Cook's Illustrated) who have an iPhone / iPod Touch
I'm looking for an icon for an iPhone application for cooks who have subscriptions to Cook's Illustrated (http://cooksillustrated.com) or Cook's Country (http://cookscountry.com). This product is not directly affiliated with those properties, and so does not have rights to any of their copyrights.
I've tried out a few themes, including cooking equipment (such as pot lids and measuring spoons) and ingredients (such as a head of garlic), but I'm open to pretty much any simple and clean icon that evokes cooking.
The icon must be delivered in three formats:
- 512x512 JPG
- 57x57 PNG
- 250x250 PNG
The 57x57 icon is the one that will be displayed on the iPhone screen; the 512x512 is used by Apple in their application store; the 250x250 PNG is used within the application in an about dialog.
The corners of the 57x57 icon will be rounded by the iPhone when displayed. Additionally, the iPhone can optionally render a glossy-ish effect to the icon.
