We're a small team of software developers who are passionate about making mobile applications. Our next project is the largest one yet: a fully-featured music composition application for the iPad, suited toward professionals.
We are targeting iPad users who are serious about music production. Users are likely musicians, including composers, producers, and performers.
We need application icons for our upcoming music composition app - Symphony Pro.
Design of the icon:
1. Shoot for a stylish, modern look.
2. We like photorealistic icons.
3. It can be representational or abstract.
4. Try to match the look and feel of the application (see the attachment).
5. Be creative. We don't want the icon to look like every other in the App Store.
6. Keep in mind that rounded edges, gloss, and some transparency is automatically applied by Apple later. The final submission should not contain any of those elements. However, you are free to submit designs with them so we can see what the final result would look like.
7. Remember this is a music composition app. Please make something that somewhat relates to it.
The files that we will need:
The icon will need to be submitted in 3 sizes, 512x512, 72x72, and 57x57. All of these sizes should be the exact same image just at different sizes. So submit the icon at each of these sizes as a .png as well as a .psd of the 512x512 image. The large icon will be displayed in the App Store, the other two will appear in the home screen of the iPad.
If you use any stock images that are not yours you will also need to provide proof that they are free to use for commercial purposes.
