Design and deliver a high-quality professional looking Android app icon which represents the brand and the message of the app and a complementary Play Store feature graphic (1024x500). The winner of the contest will also have to design the feature graphic, this can be negotiated separately on a 1-1 basis. Please provide a cost for this if possible.
The app is called Darkroom and can be downloaded here:
The core principles of the app are: powerful gallery, image editor and album organizer. The icon must capture the user’s imagination and it must be something that they would like to put on their device home-screen so that they keep using the app. It doesn’t have to be over-complicated sometimes the best icons are the simplest. The icon is the first thing the users see when searching for the app, so it must really stand out. The feature graphic is generally the second thing the users see if they decide to view the app page, so in a moment it should speak of professionalism and quality and get the user excited about the app.
The icon should be circular (they seem to stand out better unless your creative judgement can convince otherwise), you have creative freedom, but you should try to adhere to material design / Android design guidelines and the core principles of the app. This has to be an eye-catching and unique icon to stand out from the competition. Since this is a gallery app, there should probably be use of a various colour hues to give the effect of a photo & video gallery.
- Use existing app icon templates (has to be unique)
- Do not make an iOS looking icon
- Make the icon overcomplicated
- Use blue or green as the main colour, try to stay neutral if possible
