I need an amazing icon for ReactionCam! This icon needs to be sexy and eye catching. People will most likely first see ReactionCam in the Apple App Store. The name ReactionCam already describes the app well, so this icon must complement the brand and make people curious about the app.
We have some direction we'll provide, but we're open to all fun and creative ideas. The first idea is using a FACE in the icon. This can be implemented in a number of ways and would love to see your ideas! If you choose to use a face, please make sure it's a spontaneous, young male, not looking directly at the user. Secondly, we need the icon to portray FUN in some way. You can also compliment fun with JOKE in some way. Most people using the app will be playing a "joke" on their friends or family members. Lastly, you could also use some aspect of VIDEO or EMOTIONS. Or even the concept of a hidden cam.
If you also use some texture, frames or background, this texture, frame or background must have a good fit when used inside the app too, because I want some identity for ReactionCam. Notice that after choosing the icon, I will start another contest to make the screens too, and I would prefer to choose the same designer for all the jobs!
One idea that I had for this icon is to put all emphasis in two faces: scared and a laughing. Like two people interacting, together. It sounds fun to me and curious too! But look, I'am not creative as you, so please feel free to create your own concepts if you find one that fits better ReactionCam branding.
About color, you can really choose any pallet that you prefer, but please try to choose colors that fit well ReactionCam branding (fun and sexy, not cute or modern).
I need this icon to be really great and eye catching, so exploring the highlights and shadows concept, texture, angle, and composition is a great advantage.
Please take a look at this best practices article, I think that it may help a little bit :)
Notice that I need this icon in all sizes needed for Apple Store, including the the bigger 1024 size, used for iTunes in MacBook Retina. I also want the source file.
