-This design needs to be geared towards football fans. It will be used for our college and pro football application suites.
-Must reduce well. The standard iPhone icon is 57x57 pixels with rounded corners. The icon will be primarily viewed at this size. For this reason, we prefer little to no text in the icons. However, as the designer, if you can concatenate, combine, or creatively display text, then please do so.
-Please refrain from using any official team logos or trademarks. We are not licensed and are unable to use:
1) Team names like "Cornhuskers" or "Longhorns"
2) Team insignia like the Texas Longhorn symbol or the Nebraska red "N"
3) Any symbolism that a college already uses
4) "NCAA" or "NFL" or any entity birthed by those organizations like "Superbowl" or "Big 12" or "Orange Bowl."
As the designer, you only need to make one of these team icons but we encourage you to submit two icons (ex. one Nebraska Football icon and one Texas football icon) so we can see how the same style permeates each team icon, yet gives each team a personalized feel.
-vector graphics are preferred
