How David Siegel started their button or icon journey

Company name

Awareness

Overview

We are two college friends building an application for OS X that periodically plays the sound of a Tibetan singing bowl.

Our company website (placeholder): http://iamfutureproof.com/

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

We are targeting individuals interested in heightened awareness of time spent on the computer, who would find the looks and sounds of a Tibetan singing bowl appealing.

Requirements

We're looking for a 512x512 icon representing a Tibetan Singing Bowl (http://tinyurl.com/6cdrk6) pursuant to Apple's application icon guidelines (http://tinyurl.com/4a4e2v3 - pay special attention to guidelines for perspective and light source).

We've found two icons that we really love (attached). Here are some of the things we like about them:

* Bowl is gently worn, showing imperfection and age
* Darker texture on the inside of the bowl
* Warm metal texture on the outside of the bowl
* Bowl is clearly represented in 3D
* Lighting effects produce nice shadows and warm light
* Wooden striker is included, and we love its texture, shape, size, and placement. It is simple and understated while the bowl is grand.

There are some changes we'd like to make:

* We'd like overall detail added to the outside of the bowl (attached detail.jpg).
* We'd like the word "Awareness" written in pseudo-sanskrit, almost imperceptibly on the inside of the bowl (attached prakrta.ttf, futureproof_prakrta.jpg). Think of the engraving on the inside of the ring in Lord of the Rings – written in gold paint on the inside of the bowl, with a dim glimmer.
* We'd like one version of the icon without the wooden striker.

Deliverables:

* Original assets and source files (psd files, 3D rendering source files, etc.)

We think it's a challenging icon.
