Search + Photo
We want a new icon designed for iOS 7+ for the 2nd version of our app, picTrove. The first version is currently available in the app store, here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pic…16309?mt=8
The second version is built from the ground up to match the iOS 7 look and feel and has many new features, but the same main purpose. The app allows users to search various Internet services to find photos matching what they're looking for.
We want a simple, but elegant app icon that highlights the main purpose of the app with two elements prominently featured: SEARCH and PHOTOS.
The app has been designed with a black background user interface. The entire app is effectively, black. The only color in the app is the "tint" color used in buttons, etc. so that the photos, thumbnails in the app get the maximum focus. We want this "blackness" to reflect in the app icon - ideally a black / dark gray background with 1 or max 2 prominent colors in the foreground symbols / usage. The same prominent foreground color will be used as the tint color in the app as well, so it must provide contrast and work well with the iOS 7 blurred translucent black navigation bars, etc.
