What's your vision?
I am looking for a new and original three dimensional icon for a mobile app. The app is a training tool for salsa dancers and salsa musicians. The app allows them to turn instruments on and off so that they can more easily find the correct beats in the music. In salsa dancing, it is common for beginning dancers to have trouble finding the beats since salsa is different than other music. Also, the app is useful to musicians who want to play with the other instruments. The current icon is a flat design, and I am ready to go to 3D again. The icon needs to attract dancers and catch their eyes. It would be great to incorporate elements of salsa music as well, but the emphasis must be on the dancing and portray its intensity, energy, and beauty. The icon does not need to include dancers. For example, it could have dancing shoes, or other elements related to salsa dancing. Whatever you choose, the icon needs to speak to dancers, with a secondary desire to speak to musicians as well. For additional inspiration, I encourage you to read Wikipedia's page on salsa: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salsa_music In particular, you might take some inspiration from the album artwork from these or other salsa artists: "Some of the founding salsa artists were Johnny Pacheco (the creator of the Fania All-Stars), Ray Barretto, Willie Colón, Larry Harlow, Roberto Roena, Bobby Valentín, Eddie Palmieri, and Héctor Lavoe." Some additional artists include Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Mambo Legends Orchestra, George Delgado. If you want to research album art, www.descarga.com would be a good place to go.
Larger icons can contain lots of detail, but smaller versions should have an appropriate amount of detail such that they are not cluttered. Thanks, I look forward to seeing your work!
