We're the leading online and mobile gay and lesbian travel community connecting people and helping them know where to go, stay and eat in cities all over the world. People have called us a "gay yelp" or "gay tripadvisor" and our iPhone app consistently ranks in the top 30 travel apps in the iPhone app store. We aim to be affable and approachable and provide quality up-to-date info for our users all while helping them have fun in the process.
Our audience is the GLBT market in general, with our primary target being gay men 30-50 who travel regularly for work or pleasure.
Our app has existing icons or "pins" that show up on a map in the app. Each category of listing has a unique icon/pin (bars, hotels, restaurants, shops, beaches, gyms/spas, arts/culture, bathhouses, organizations, events, parking, wineries, attractions). See the attached for the existing icons.
This project has two purposes:
1) re-do / refresh existing pins to look a little cleaner
2) create icons for our browse screen
We like most of our existing icons, but some are sub-par (shops and orgs look particularly bad). Also, our existing icons aren't all the same shape and some have "jaggies", some have odd colors around edges. We generally like the color selection (and our users are used to the main categories bars, hotels, restaurants), but are open to alternatives.

Icons for browse screen
See attachment for our browse screen. We need icons to sit next to each of the categories name. They should probably harken back to the pins, but probably shouldn't have the pin shape (should they be reversed out, on a circle/square? you propose). Also, we need to have an icon for "all nearby".
End Size: 30x30
