*UPDATE* What is Kutoto?Kutoto is an iOS app that allows users to locally crowdsource things in their life to other Kutoto users. For instance, if you wanted someone to wash your car, or to make you gluten free cookies - you post it to Kutoto through your iphone, and then other Kutoto users in your area would see your request and fulfill it for you.
Transactions are handled through the app, so no money has to trade hands. You can either use the app to get things done and make your life easier, or to make money by providing for other Kutoto users around you & in your community.
When people see the icon for Kutoto, some things we want them to think are:
*iOS icons need to be done at retina quality, 1024X1024 (use http://testico.net/ to upload the 1024X1024 version, and it will show us what it looks like at all resolutions)
We want to make a great visual first impression with a really IMPESSIVE app icon.
We like app icons that are simplistic in that they are first letters that represent the company name, think:
We want to combine this with the ability to take advantage of the iOS icon dimensions, and make something artistic, impressive & unique.
Examples of app icons that creatively integrate the dimensions into the app design:
SOME IDEAS:Feel free to get creative, here's an idea that I thought about were:
-Background is a grass park, the K is a tree, and there are little people trading goods with dollar signs over them.-Use the existing simple Kutoto icon style but turn it into a briefcase stuffed with money, using a creative perspective of the iOS icon.-Use the existing simple Kutoto icon style but make the background light green money symbols-Use the existing simple Kutoto icon style, but put it in a clever frame/border to give creative perspective.-Use the existing simple Kutoto icon style, but place icons/words over the icon banner style to make it pop in the appstore.
Feel free to use this idea, or any elements of it, or ask me questions and submit some entries for feedback!
I've included our current app icon, and an example of a detailed app icon that we really love.
