I need a new icon for my Mac app: Quiver, The Programmer’s Notebook
Quiver is a Mac app that helps programmers take notes. Its unique cell-based design makes it easy to mix text, code, Markdown and LaTeX inside one note. It also has an awesome code editor built-in, supports live preview of Markdown and LaTeX, and lets you find any note instantly via the full-text search.
The app name “Quiver” is a metaphor: a quiver keeps arrows safe for a great archer, and “Quiver" keeps notes organized for a great programmer.
Quiver has been gaining traction after recent updates, so I am considering a new icon. The old design was okay in my opinion, but quite a few users have voiced strong opinions against it. Complaints include: it doesn’t convey the idea of a “notebook”, it looks like a game, its irregular shape looks strange on the dock.
I would like a clean, simple design that clearly conveys the idea of a “Programmer’s Notebook”. It would be nice if you can blend in the quiver metaphor, but that’s not a requirement.
* Simple, clean design that looks great on the dock (Yosemite style would be better)
* Clearly conveys the idea of a “Programmer’s Notebook”
* Easily stand out among all the notebook apps
* Must look good at both low (32x32) and high (1024x1024) resolution
* Layered PSD/AI files must be provided
