Art & Design
We are bulding a mobile app, which gives users an easy way to create paintings, looking like the ones created by most famous painters (van Gogh, Dali, Munch, Picasso). We are inspired by the paintings like: The Starry Night, Vincent Van Gogh The Persistence of Memory, Salvador Dali The Scream, Edvard Munch
What's your vision?
We need 1 icon for our Android application in different sizes: 48x48, 72x72, 96x96, 144x144, 192x192, 512x512. All icons in PNG and source file (in .ai or .psd). The icon should be associated with painters, or paintings, or Salvador Dali (do NOT use his face!). It should be inspired by those but should not contain exact copy of any painting (or painters face/foto). Paintings we like are attached. UPD There's no such instrument as brush in the app (paintings are generated using photos and filters), so do not use image of brush on the icon. UPD2 One of the ideas which we want to try is silhoutte of selfie / phone / camera (smth like instagram icon) with Dali moustache on it. If you don't have ideas, which are directly connected to famous paintings, please give it a try. UPD3 Camera + mustache seems to be not looking well. So another idea: icon should be looking like some abstract painting.

It all began with a design brief.

Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
dm.shagov collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.

We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
