Slimjim was great to work with. He was responsive to the changes we requested and delivered a logo that we like very much.
How MichelleRMiller started their button or icon journey
This is sports technology start-up that will be used by non-internet saavy people - so the icons need to be pretty clear, basic, but hopefully cool/modern looking!
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
coaches on their blackberry phones - will be very small. will also use the same icons on the web application.
Here are the 10 icons I'm looking for to start - whoever wins, I will work with them for about 5-10 more to come later.
2 sizes -
* web icons for website - 50 pixels x 50 pixels
* Blackberry icons (TBD - guessing around 25px x 25px)
( ) My watch list (similar to "my favorites")
( ) Player search (basketball players - maybe magnifying glass with bball player in background)
( ) Game Schedule (final four tournament bracket)
( ) Court Schedule (a basketball court)
( ) Game Grid (looks like an excel spreadsheet)
( ) Special Reports (maybe a star with a report/paper)
( ) General Information (circle w/ an "i")
( ) Sync New Data
( ) Coaches Pass (similar to a ticket to get into an event/game)
( ) Save + Exit
I can email samples of some ideas I have to anyone who's interested.
I also found the navigation icons at http://www.name.com (the very top of their homepage) to be very close to the style I like.
I'm open to colors - they can be all different colors - the software is private labeled - so actually I'd prefer the use of many different colors for the icons to help distinguish them. Maybe have a primary color (black) that shows up in all of them, and then each has a different color to associate with each icon.
