We need an icon for iOS that represents our app.
Keywords are travel, translation/language, and food(allergies). We understand it's hard to put all of that into a single image, so we trust your judgement as to where to put the main focus.
We are not looking for a character or a mascot. The basic idea we came up with is a warning sign with a fork and a meat-ball instead of an exclamation mark (see attachment). We like the idea of a variation on a powerful image/symbol that everyone is familiar with.
This is the general direction we want to go into. Within that constraint, you are completely free in how to go about this in terms of design.
We would like to see the following gradient in the design somewhere:
It doesn't have to be prominent, but we'd like it to be in there somewhere, because this gradient is used throughout the app. It is also not a very common color in the app store, which will help make it jump out, so don't hesitate to use it as the main theme, either.
With all that said, if you have a much better better idea than we do, feel free to show us what you got!
