How chronosafe started their logo design journey

Summary

My new iPhone app needs branding! I'm looking for a professional and creative "look and feel" for my application in the form of an inspired logo and a cool-looking icon for the Apple App Store. It's an automotive industry program that's aimed at a commercial and private-sector audience.

Company name

VIN Hunter (eventually http://www.vinhunter.com)

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

I’m looking for a logo and App Store icon for an iPhone app that I’ve developed. The name of the app is “VIN Hunter”. The application allows the user to enter a car or trucks VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) and it will decode the vehicle’s information. The application also allows you to assign an image and thumbnail to each vehicle, as well as tie in vehicle history information from CARFAX.

I need a logo that will convey a professional image since the largest market for the app will be members of the automotive industry (dealerships, auction houses, insurance adjusters). The icon needs to have an automotive element to it, though it doesn’t need to solely be car-related. Bold sharp lines work best for what I have in mind but by all means be creative. The icon needs to be presented at a resolution of 512x512 and 57x57. Layered Photoshop PSDs is the required file format.

The logo needs to tie into the icon design. It should be horizontal in layout and work with either a light or dark background. I’d like to use the design on T-Shirts, business cards, and other promotional materials, so please keep the gradients to a minimum. The higher the resolution the better. Extra points for a vector-based product.

No stock images for either the logo or the icon; I’m looking for an original design to really make my app stand out. Previous experience with app store graphics is a big plus in my opinion.

The contest I’m running once I have an acceptable logo will be for a one-page site design focused around these elements. The winner will get first shot at this before it’s offered as a contest.
