I need a logo design and a matching springboard icon. I need both in a vector and raster format.
The logo should be on the scale of 500px on it's larger side (I'll leave it up to you to decide the aspect ratio).
The springboard icon (which is what shows up on the ipad home screen, similar to an iphone, and which the user uses to launch the application) must be 512px by 512px. It should not have any baked in gloss or rounded corners (those are added by the ipad automatically).
1. The logo and icon should convey that this application is fun to use. Something with bright colors would be great. However, it shouldn't feel childlike.
2. At the same time, it needs to be somewhat conservative, given the target audience. It should be something that a salesman in a conservative industry wouldn't be embarrassed to have seen by a prospective client.
Other than that, this is really open ended. Feel free to experiment!
It would be great to see designs that focus on the concept of ideas flowing/exploding/blossoming/floating out of an ipad/presentation. It would be great if your design can focus on the presentation itself, rather than the person giving the presentation.
