"Plank Hero" is a fitness app for iOS and Android. We are investing most of our resources into the design and ui and we need an incredible logo to front our efforts.
We are assuming that most know what a plank is, but just in case you don't, Google "plank ab exercise" and learn about it :)
What we like and need:
- Hand crafted!!! This cannot be overemphasized - please actually create something unique!
- Single color (can have 2-3 colors max, but it must be able to exist in single color and still look awesome)
- Flat (not shadows or other "depth" tricks)
- Easy on the eyes (smooth/clean lines, not "sharp")
- Must have an element that would work as an app icon. If doing an icon+text, the icon should be that element. If Doing text, then be creative and show how the lettering could be iconified.
- Playful and fun!
What we don't like:
- Overly "strong" icons and fonts
- Trying to just use "P" and "H" together somehow in an icon
Some elements of the app itself to help your creative juices:
- Doughnut chart(s)
- Individual and group planks
We are leaning toward doing an icon+text logo, but in some ways are curious to see what could be done for a text-only approach.
For icon-only or icon+text, please consider something like:
- Runkeeper (https://runkeeper.com)
- Random Abs (http://randomabs.com)
- Robinhood (https://www.robinhood.com)
For text-only, please consider:
- Stylus (http://stylus-lang.com)
Remember - we are looking for AWESOME and WOW designs! The app stores are overcrowded with low-quality apps and ours must immediately convey quality and stand out from the rest.
An idea to consider (but please use your own ideas too) would be a little hero-person either doing a plank or in a flying position so horizontal that the board-like position implies a plank.
