Service to find live home poker games around the world
What's your vision?
I need a simple icon for our mobile application which allows users to find live home poker games near their location. The icon is for iOS (iPhone/iPad) and Android and needs to meet the icon guidelines of both app stores.It must be a Vector graphic so that I can scale it to various sizes (see sizes below). I want a SIMPLE icon which shows a world globe and something to do with poker. Basically the service will show a Google map with the users location and then home poker games on the map around them (like this http://a3.mzstatic.com/us/r1000/064/Purple/ce/c0/de/mzl.pznzwfmo.320x480-75.jpg). So the icon needs to represent a global search for poker games. Some possible ideas: An WORLD icon like this with a Magnifying Glass close over it: http://www.psdgraphics.com/icons/global-search-icon-psd-globe-and-magnifier/ http://www.iconfinder.com/icondetails/61605/128/find_icon http://www.iconfinder.com/icondetails/67356/128/_icon In the magnifying glass is the SPADE icon from poker (the same way it is in the Clock icon here http://catalog.zune.net/v3.2/en-GB/apps/855b79d9-fae0-df11-a844-00237de2db9e/primaryImage?width=240&height=240&resize=true) Alternative: Instead of a Spade, maybe 2 aces playing cards? I want it simple with not too many colors - maybe on a grey background I saw this on this site for a previous entry and really like it: http://99designs.com/buttons-icons/contests/iphone-app-finder-needs-icon-29995/entries/1 The round circle could be the world icon and the Magnifying Glass would just need a spade in it. I like the style of this icon a lot. (e.g one color for the magnifying glass) Bonus: If you can work the Red and Navy colours in from my Logo on http://www.PokerDIY.com that would be very good. Note: Here is a great blog post on SIMPLE icons - http://inspirationfeed.com/inspiration/20-examples-of-detailed-ios-application-icon-designs/ I want it very easy to understand with not too much details.
Must be a scaleable Vector icon that can scale to the following sizes: 29*29,57*57, 58*58,114*114, 72*72, 512*512 (the winner will need to provide each of the following sizes and the original vector image) Must meet appstore icon requirements http://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#documentation/userexperience/conceptual/mobilehig/IconsImages/IconsImages.html http://developer.android.com/guide/practices/ui_guidelines/icon_design_launcher.html As per the Apple guidelines, do not round the corners/drop shadow/shine as Apple do this automatically.
