Drew Little got their new app design by running a design contest:
Modernizing (once) very popular photography iphone app
Check out Drew Little's App design contest…
Photo filter app. We present the user with a variety of randomized vintage looks. They can choose one to share, or see more variations. The app provides infinite variety of effects with a very minimal UI.
Plastic Bullet has been a successful iOS app on the iTunes App Store for many years, and now it's time to update its look. See attached files. The "launch screen example" image is from an app we really like, and we'd like our new launch screen to . the "3 screens" image is a rough wireframe sketch of what we are looking for in the three screens to operate the app. The "plastic bullet icons" image is the type of app icon we would like created. we want it to look exactly like the "plastic bullet app icon" but "flattened" for a more modern look. The old Plastic Bullet had red as it's signature color, but we'd like to update/change that too. Ideally the app icon should look familiar to exiting users, so maybe it becomes a new shade of red.
Plastic Bullet Camera
We need three screens designed: 1) Launch screen where the user can choose "Camera" or "Library". As a background we are considering using actual rendered pictures from the app, so the buttons need to work over a variety of images. There should also be a small info or ellipsis button here for the app info, credits, etc. Note: It's intentional that there's no way to return to this screen from within the app. 2) The "4-up" screen. There are three buttons on a bar at the bottom (the old app had them at the top): Camera, Refresh, and Library. Camera launches the camera screen. Library takes the user to the photo library. Refresh, in the center, is the most important button and we'd like to give it a signature (redish?) color, as well as make it stand out in size and prominence on the bar. Press this and the app re-generates 4 thumbnails of your image with new random settings. If you tap one of the thumbnails, you are taken to 3) the "1-up" screen. Here we focus on just one image. The bottom bar remains the same. A top bar is added (or just buttons, no bar) with a back button to take you back to the 4-up view, and a share button to save or share the photo.
What to avoid
The old Plastic Bullet app has the beveled, rounded, shaded look of the first generation of iPhone apps. While we like the association with classic cameras, we want to clearly show that the app has been modernized.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their app design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Drew Little collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
