How Matt Farnell started their button or icon journey
memap is a native map based iphone application that links into your social networks to show you where your friends are and what they are doing. I need an awesome iphone Icon and a landing page for this application that looks great!!
I will also add the winning designer (and their contact details) to the application credits (if you like)
memap, MeMap (all lowercase, title case, you decide)
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
iPhone Application Icon
I'm really leaving this icon design open and have no constraints other then its critical to make this icon awesome, that doesn't neccessarily mean lots of complication or too much in the design!! The target demographic is teens to 30s (the typical myspace, facebook user)
A screen shot of the application can be seen here
Don't be too constrained by the map colors as they change depending on whether the map is on land, sea, streets etc. The blue header bar in the screen shot can be changed to match the icon so don't be constrained by its color. I would prefer the header to be some type of blue header but this isn't essential. More details can be seen in the landing page design brief outlined below.
Specifications (needed in 2 sizes)
Small Size - 57 x 57 pixels, 90 degree corners- 72ppi, RGB, flattened, no transparency, 24bit png format- Does not have any shine or gloss- The most important size. This is the one that's used on the iphone!!!- Apple iPhone Icon ReferenceLarge Size- 512 x 512 pixels- 72ppi, RGB, flattened, no transparency- High Quality JPEG or TIFF format- This is the one thats used in the itunes store.
iPhone Application Landing Page
The first time the user starts the application they will get to the landing page where they will need to login. This landing page is secondary in importance to that of the icon but it also must convey similar qualities to that of the icon, I suspect that this page will include the icon in some way or another with some supporting design although I don't want to constrain creative flair and make this a requirement. The design of the landing page must contain the word 'memap' and will have to comply with the template landing page I have outlined in the link below.

- An Awesome iPhone icon (in 2 sizes), explained above- An Awesome iPhone landing page which includes the word memap and conforms to the landing page template which can be viewed here. Landing Page Template- The original photoshop/illustrator psd files
