The current app icon needs a refresh. The app started as a simple tool to track fuel consumption only, now it has been reengineered to monitor all types of vehicle related expenses, maintenance and repairs, plus will remind the user of things pending to do to their wheels. With this major update the icon should refresh, too. Ideally the icon should communicate the above features.
The current icon has never been intended to last this long. Many people do think of the App by the "little red car icon". The current icon shows a rather well known kids toy car which I would like to change. Variations of little red car is fine, but it should be clear that the app is for the grown ups, not for the kids. The new icon should keep a connection to the "little red car". I am looking more for a refresh than a radical change.
>Update< The app exists in two versions: a normal edition and as a enhanced edition. The current icon reflects this with the the word "Evo" as a distinction. So I am asking for two icons, one with "Evo", one without. The Icon should look great with the word "Evo" and should look great without the word "Evo". Please don't make "Evo" a key element that is vital to the design >end<
There a plenty of apps with a petrol pump icon, please none of these. Nothing wrong with a gas pump as such, but there are simply to many apps out there with with only a pump on the icon.
I am looking for a nice clear crisp icon to really appeal to drivers. The icon should have depth to it and good detail and texture, 3D effects are welcome. An increase of contrast of the currently white background to a white page (i.e. in iTunes) is welcome. Not a requirement, but for your consideration: Inside the app the background is light gray with blue button and some green and some red buttons. Touches of sticky-note-yellow are present, too.
The high detail and richer icon should be in 512 x 512 pixels and 1024 x 1024 px. The small version should be in 57 x 57 px, 72 x 72 px, 114 x 114 px, 144 x 144 px. All versions please with 90° corners and PNG format, but without drop shadow, without shine nor gloss and without alpha transparency. Please provide final PSD file with layers.
I am really looking forward to seeing your creative ideas!
