Byteable Software requires a clean, modern and stylish icon for a fun ‘whisky tasting-note generator’ Android application. This will be used as a launcher icon on Android phones.
The application generates a light-hearted tasting note for an imaginary whisky, based on attributes selected by the user.
We would like a very simple icon - a letter ‘W’ on a whisky-colored or whisky-themed background. Or maybe the letter ‘W’ under whisky or behind a glass of Whisky.
The whisky colour is very important in that it should be rich and vibrant.
This link http://whiskytimes.co.uk/2011/08/wh…-the-fuss/ shows some of the beautiful colours that are available within a glass of whisky. We would tend towards a gold color with some touches of amber.
The ‘W’ could be on an abstract background colour or given effects as though it is behind a curved whisky glass or under the distorting liquid effects of being submerged under some whisky.
I am unsure whether a modern or classic font would work better.
When posting samples of the icon, please include an example ‘on the phone’ so that I can see the icon in context amongst other icons. An example here shows an iPhone home screen, but this would do to give me an idea of how it would look in an icon-populated display:
Note that we like the ‘glossy’ look of most of the icons in the above link.
Example 1. Here is the twitter icon which has both nice ‘gloss’, and is simple and modern:
Note: The twitter icon uses a lower-case ‘t’ and blue colours. I want an upper-case ‘W’ and whisky colours
2. Here is the Facebook icon, a lower-case ‘f’ and blue.
The icon is required in the following sizes:
36x36px / 120dpi
48x48px / 160 dpi
72x72px / 240 dpi
96x96 / 320 dpi
