SaleRing--a livestock e-commerce and auction app designed for the high end, niche animal show industry
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We need an app icon designed that is three dimensional and as realistic as possible with the basic premise of a fancy, sophisticated and modern livestock auction ring. The outer wall of the ring should be the front edges of the app icon that extends up, as is the case with this glass of whiskey in the photo. You can get creative with the detailing on the "walls" but there should be two clear doors...one for animals coming in and one for animals going out.
The vantage point should be taken from a slightly elevated view to give the illusion that you are looking at an auction ring from the stands. The app icon should be basically the same as the first picture with the edges of the salering doubling as the edges of the app icon, just as they do in the app icon in this glass of whiskey (second pic). The floor should be dark purple as in the picture, but no need to include the persons sitting behind the block, if it gets too complicated/crowded. Feel free to get creative and deviate from the picture in order to avoid certain distinct similarities.
Ideally, the app icon should be a hybrid of the two with a very realistic/3D look, but being very classy and sophisticated as is the case with the glass of whiskey.
