We are looking for a designer to create 8 icons in vector format that looks good resized between 50x50 pixels up to 200x200. The icons are for a web application, with an overall look and feel more like a tablet or iPad interface, or even like the Launchpad feature in OS X.

The icons can be inspired by iPhone/iPad icons, but must be clearly distinguishable.

We have selected a few icons from the Apple App store and other places that we like, and that can used as inspiration for an overall look and feel.

The web application is an LMS (Learning Management System), but do not look as existing LMS's for inspiration, we do not want our system to look like any existing ones.

The icons can be unique from each other as well, full of colour, and detail. The 8 icons are as follows:


Training

Calendar

Control Panel

Tools

Memos

Glossary

Reports

Incident Reports

Training: Actually "My Training". Where a Student user logs in to access their current training courses and exams.

Calendar: Where user keeps track of due dates and activities.

Control Panel: User customizes their online account functions, look, and feel.

Tools: glossary, reference library,

Memos: User receives important memos they must read and confirm.

Glossary: Basic dictionary of terms.

UPDATE

Thank you for all of the submissions. While we like some in terms of design execution, we still are not seeing the artistic representation that we were hoping for.

As a result we have decided to define the content of the graphics more specifically now. Please see the list of the icons with some more specific direction and ideas.

Training:
- A student school desk or study desk
- Grad cap
- Desk with binders / books on it.
* Note: This is for Workplace training, so should try to avoid looking too much like a grade school theme.

Training Records:
- File Cabinet drawer with one Folder part way out
- File Cabinet
- Bundle of File Folders

Incident Reports:
- Exclamation Mark inside Red or Yellow Triangle (pointy end down).

Memos:
- Document page with a boxed area at bottom containing a signature blank (" X ______________") laying in an In-box
- An 'In-Box'

Calendar:
- A calendar month page with a highlight line drawn across about 5 days, and 2 or 3 other days marked with ! or * or √ or X .

Control Panel:
- A Menu Bar with one of the menu items dropped down showing about 5 selections in different colours
- 2 - 4 control panel type selections like a set of radio buttons, checkboxes, slider, and drop-down menu

Glossary:
- A dictionary looking book or a close-up of a dictionary entry, maybe with a small graphic in the entry.

Tools
- wrench screw driver
- open red toolbox

Hi all,

We just wanted to let you know that the buyer in this project has requested a refund. And, because we offer buyers a money back guarantee, sometimes we have to make good on that promise.

To reward the loyal creatives who worked hard on this project and all the others on the site, we've taken the proceeds from this project and used them to fund our monthly cS Awards program. The cS Awards are issued every month based on varying criteria but are a simple way that we give back to the community and reward our creatives.

Thanks so much for participating and see you around the site,

The cS crew
