NEED A SHARE ICON>We have a method for users to vote and help scoring of articles. For example, is this article bad news? is this article good news? What we're in need of is an ICONIC social media button that will be present across all mobile platforms including the internet. We already have a separate content for the app icon so this is NOT THAT.
Please think of this as the facebook "like" button or the pinterest button, or the twitter "Follow" button. We need something very small, yet something that will be PROLIFIC, and ICONIC, this is a very small button that has to look clear at very small sizes. At some point in the near future, you may see this button all over the internet, so whatever you're designing please make it count.
Thank you for all the work. What we're seeing are alot of very standard designs. Maybe I wasnt clear enough in the briefing. The main branding colors are a yellow and a grey. I can provide more detail but I feel it prob. won't be important until I see something that really blows my mind. We need Like (good news) & dislike (Bad News) buttons - these will be present ALL THROUGHOUT THE APP UI.
We also need a Share button for the internet. I will upload our app logo for usage. Try to do something that holds true to the app icon and IMMEDIATELY tells the user what those icons mean, what actions should they take? It shouldnt require ANY THINKING whatsoever. The user needs to know RIGHT AWAY exactly what these buttons do, what their purpose is. We have a "score" for each article, the users actions throughout the app will have an immediate impact on what news is presented versus what is not.
Remember, these are icon. So they need to be designed for small usage. Very small. Just like any call to action or share button you've seen within a mobile app UI, Create something unique, "to the point", innovative, beautiful, elegant and more importantly designed to be viewed in Perfect, crystal-clear clarity at VERY-SMALL SIZES.
Remember, next to each article, the user is going to be either hitting Like (As in "This is GOOD NEWS") or Dislike (THIS IS BAD NEWS) - this helps our algorithim and the overall user experience across the app.
Individual articles will be given a Positivity score based on this button. It's a very critical component of the app and it needs to be completely unique. Do NOT design something that looks like a facebook like HAND, or anything of that nature.
We need something completely original. This will be positioned next to each and every article within the UI, whether they tap on the article or not, it will be next to the title so our users can score it. Please do something new, creative and original.
