How invariant started their button or icon journey

Company name

DwellClick - http://dwellclick.com

Overview

My app is in the Mac App Store and needs a great icon. Version 1.x is already on sale and I'm getting V2.0 ready. But I'm a coder, not a graphic designer. I want to give the app's icon a boost.

DwellClick is a Mac OS X utility app which makes your mouse or trackpad 'magically' click and drag without having to click the buttons. It streamlines the way you use you mouse, and also protects from getting repetitive strain injuries.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

The customers are discerning Mac users who love trying new software and use the internet and the Mac App Store to find and download apps. They want great quality, well designed products.

I also want it to appeal to reviewers, bloggers, magazines writers etc. who might choose to feature it in their publications.

Requirements

I want a bold, vibrant icon for a my Mac OS X app, DwellClick (http://dwellclick.com).

The current icon is simply a black 2D mouse pointer with gloss and a drop shadow (see attachments). I encourage you to retain the idea of a mouse pointer as the main concept within the icon, but give the design more depth and visual appeal.

Icon should be
- solid, 3D feel
- bold, energetic .. and a touch of fun and magic
- simple and memorable
- slick, high quality, attention to detail
- look good in high resolution
- no text in the image
- it must stand out in the Mac App Store

IMPORTANT: The icon should NOT be a square icon with rounded corners. This is not an iPhone app. It should fit in with other Mac icons and look good in the Dock.

The icon must follow Mac OS X standards, with a 512x512 main version. I'd like source files too (.psd or illustrator files etc.)

Can't wait to see what you come up with!
