How David Renie started their button or icon journey

Overview

We're a couple of guys making iPhone apps in our spare time. We got psyched about releasing our first app, Mood Pad, only to see our rival, Heat Pad, appear in the AppStore a couple weeks before us. We've got the graphics engine, we've got the features, but we need the icon! That's where you come in.

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

Our audience is trendy teen iPhone users. The free version of our app currently has over 100k downloads, and we know a great icon will increase its appeal.

Requirements

We love how Heat Pad's icon clearly shows the purpose of the app: to touch the screen with one or more fingers and watch it change colors. You can find Heat Pad's icon at http://www.apptism.com/icons/000/03…1240073379. It's an image of a hand swiping across an iPhone and creating a wake of colors. The icon you design should express this fundamental aspect of the app.

Please design an application icon for Mood Pad in both 512x512 (AppStore) and 57x57 (iPhone) sizes. Feel free to just resize the 512x512 icon to be 57x57, but if there are lost details, please touch them up in your final submission. The appearance of the 57x57 icon is the highest priority.

I'll give solid, constructive feedback shortly after you post something.

In addition to being a beautiful, meaningful, edgy icon for this app, the icon should match the iPhone UI guidelines and not be completely out of place when sitting next to Apple's iPhone icons. The icon should
* Be square.
* Be facing the screen head on, not facing left or right with perspective.
* Have a light source (if needed) coming from the top, not from the left or right.
* Must look good on a black or light gray background.

You can submit screenshots of rounded icons, but I'll need the final assets to be square (Apple requires this). In addition to the final images, I'll need the PSD or illustrator file.
