We have a new iPhone app out called glimpse. It combines time lapse video with GPS data and then plays it all back to you in one player. It's a unique way of taking and viewing photos.
Once you take a glimpse you can then upload the glimpse to glimpsecloud.com. This provides you with an easy way to share a glimpse with your friends.
You can get more info by checking out http://www.glimpsecloud.com. You can see our current logo there. We're happy with that logo. The only problem is that it doesn't translate very well into the small icon that is displayed on the iPhone.
We are targeting iPhone users who are generally into technology and shiny, pretty icons. Also those that like photography, time lapse video, and sharing creations with friends.
I need a couple different things out of this contest.
First, I need an icon that will be displayed on the iPhone and on the app store. Here are the specifics for the icons
* Application icon
57 x 57 pixels with 90 degree corners
No shine; no gloss
Does not use alpha transparency
(Apple will ultimately add the glass overlay and rounded corners)
* AppStore icon
512 x 512 pixel version of Application icon. This can be slightly more detailed than the application icon. The only requirement is that it must match the application icon in some way.
I'm also looking for a logo that will look good on the application website. See http://www.glimpsecloud.com. The logo at the top of the page is what will be replaced so it must look good when placed on that site. This can be as simple as adding the name of the app to the icons mentioned above. It doesn't have to be completely different.
I have no real visual requirements on what you do with the logo and icon. Remember what the application does; time lapse video combined with location information to give you a unique view of images. It then allows you to share that with friends. Just make the logo and icon somehow fit into what the application does. Some keywords to consider when making your design; photo, video, slideshow, time lapse, compass, map, cloud, share. However you can get across what glimpse does is up to you. Nothing too simple. I'm looking for something really creative that I can't do myself. I'm very active in these contests so you'll definitely get feedback.
I need the original source of the images. I strongly prefer adobe illustrator(ai) format for all images.
