*** Please read the attached notes... this is only a summary. If you don't read the notes, you'll almost certainly not be considered ****
*** We're only looking for an icon (mapcon was just our clever way of saying an icon-on-the-map). The icon should meet the criteria below ( a few variations, a few different colors) but basically, 1 icon. The maps we're included so you'd have a feel for the zoom levels we're working in and the colors you'll need to work with. Good Luck ***
- MUST look like a townhouse (or townhouse-esq) NOT a house.
- LOOK and FEEL amazing on a google map. read notes!!
- A single character (A-Z0-9) must be clearly displayed! Don't just write it on the side of the building. read notes!
- No boarders / backgrounds - townhouses on the map.
- Around 30x30 (px). Feel free to exceed tho, read notes!!
- Must have 5 states (colors? - up to you!): normal, over, click, standout, unavailable.
- Must have 5 variations. Make these slight variations (another level, more windows, fewer windows, etc..)
- Don't copy people. Avoid the well known guys: trulia, zillow, hotpads, etc... These are well designed sites with great teams -- they've set the bar. Don't copy it.
To be considered, you'll need to provide the following:
- All the 25 variations of the mapcon and each of the 36 different character overlay in a png sprite.
- Optimized, png sprite, containing all 5 variations of the mapcon in all 5 states (for a total of 25 versions) and 36 "character-overlays" each with one character A-Z and 0-9.
