What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We're looking for a new icon for an existing app called PhotoTangler Collage Maker, which allows users to "mix photos together" in unique ways. We are hoping for an attractive icon design that can successfully convey the purpose of the app (blending photos together) while also being eye-catching enough for users in the app store to notice it.
The current app icon is quite ugly, and I'd like to avoid anything like it. We are looking for something fresh and unique that'll be used in the product branding across several platforms. We have tried commissioning icons for this product in the past, but have not found an effective way yet to properly communicate the idea in an icon-- so a big part of this contest is coming up with a unique concept based on the themes of "photography" and "mixing photos together."
