We make history apps for the iPad. These apps are interactive books that focus on famous battles and wars.
I would like an app icon built for my upcoming iPad app. The app is similar to a book and it focuses on the Battle of Antietam in the US Civil War.
This app is the first in a series of iPad apps focusing on famous historical battles. These apps focus on the strategy and tactics of the battles.
In general, I want an icon that is similar to the imagery in the app itself. You can see screenshots of the main pages here:
I like the idea of blocks and/or arrows denoting strategy, tactics, troop movements, etc.
Here is the wiki page for the Battle of Antietam http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antietam. You can see maps on that page that are similar to mine. You can get the original AI files for those maps at http://www.cwmaps.com/freemaps.html. (I do not want anything directly copied from those files. I am just providing them as a reference.)
The image should be optimized as an iPad icon, but should look good up to 1024x1024. The file should be layered and use vector graphics. PSD or AI.
In general I prefer bright colors and uncluttered design.
This app is also going to be the first in a series of apps. Each icon will hopefully be similar.
