I need a logo design and a matching application icon. I need both in a vector and raster format.
The logo should be on the scale of 500px on it's larger side (I'll leave it up to you to decide the aspect ratio).
The application icon (which is what shows up on the ipad home screen, similar to an iphone, and which the user uses to launch the application) must be in two sizes: 512px by 512px and 72px x 72px . It should not have any baked in gloss or rounded corners (those are added by the ipad automatically).
1. The logo and icon should convey that this application is fun to use. Something with bright colors would be great. However, it shouldn't feel childlike.
2. At the same time, it needs to be somewhat conservative, given the target audience. It should be something that a salesman in a conservative industry wouldn't be embarrassed to have seen by a prospective client.
3. It MUST NOT use any image or representation of the iPad, or anything that resembles an iPad or tablet computer.
4. It would be great to see designs that focus on the concept of ideas flowing/exploding/blossoming/floating out of a presentation. It would be great if your design can focus on the presentation itself, rather than the person giving the presentation.
Other than that, this is really open ended. Feel free to experiment!
