Android App – Whisky Notebook needs an icon
What's your vision?
Brief Overview An icon design to be used for Android app Launcher and Marketplace for a ‘whisky notebook’ application Brand Name Whisky Notebook Target Audience Whisky drinkers who enjoy discussing whisky and keeping a record of what they have tasted. Requirements The app allows users to make tasting notes on the whiskies that they drink. It also allows them to look up information about whisky brands and distilleries. The key concepts of the app are: - Whisky - Notetaking Hence the desired icon would probably involve: - A glass of whisky, or drop of whisky, or spilt whisky etc - Some writing, and/or a pen, or pen nib, or ink etc I am looking for designs that are bright and clean. I do NOT want any text or lettering on the design. Any whisky glass imagery should be of the brandy-style/tasting type such as: http://www.rosendahl.com/Products_from_Rosendahl.aspx?ProductID=25359 Whisky comes in a wonderful rich palate of colours, from pale yellow to deep red. http://whiskytimes.co.uk/2011/08/whisky-colours-why-the-fuss/ https://www.google.co.uk/search?tbm=isch&hl=en&source=hp&biw=1586&bih=369&q=whisky Please use warm tones. Whisky gets a variation of tone when it is in a round glass as the depth of the liquid varies. Please exploit this. I do NOT want a crowded or overly-detailed icon: - I think a whole pen would be too small to fit into an icon, whereas the detail of a pen-nib would work better. - Maybe a whole glass would work (if you choose to use a glass) or maybe a close-up of part of a whisky glass would be better. Ice cubes should NOT feature in the icon. For pen imagery, I would lean toward the fountain-pen style nib, mainly because it has an interesting shape. It also represents age/maturity/expense which are traditional whisky concepts, I do NOT have a fixed idea of what the winning icon would look like. I am happy to be surprised by a novel approach.
