How Cory Imdieke started their button or icon journey

Company name

Tune Frame

Overview

Our company specializes in creating iPhone and iPad applications for clients around the world. This particular project is for us internally - and we need it to reflect our brand, and the high quality work we can produce.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Anyone (and everyone) who owns an iPad and goes on the App Store. Ideally these people love music and have a decent collection of their own.

Requirements

The App Icon is the first and last thing the user sees when they interact with the app - and more importantly the thing they'll see to draw them in from the App Store listings. We need an icon that has that special dynamic to it, instead of just a flat image with rounded corners.

The app itself shows a "screensaver" slideshow of the user's album art on the screen, flipping one of the covers around every few seconds. It is similar to the album art screensaver present on OS X but with much more interactivity.

I've attached screenshots of the app show its main functionality, and a couple icon drafts which we don't like too much. The first one with all the covers is too flat - it doesn't convey that message we're looking for. The second one with the single cover is better but too dark, it doesn't stand out.

- We don't really want any text in the icons. Let the image speak for itself.
- We like the border, but it isn't strictly necessary. Do whatever works for your design.

We'll need these icons in ai/eps/svg format. One file 512x512 for the iTunes store, another 72x72 for the device.

We also need to make sure that copyright issues aren't a problem, so keep that in mind if you plan on using actual album art in your design.

EDIT: I've attached a demo which shows the main functionality of the app. The slideshow goes automatically one cover at a time, or the user can touch covers to flip them manually. If you shake the device, all of the covers flip at once (seen at the end.) Hope this gives a better idea of what the app does.
