Describe the target audience for your icon design

I've uploaded a picture of our logo. We just need an icon that compliments it. Don't use any letters in the logo (Facebook). Use an image that will look good on a tiny smartphone screen, on t-shirts, business cards, etc. Make sure it's something that compliments the word Sharecro. So it can be a scarecrow, a crow, a cool bird of some sort, a unique design, a feather, just get creative. The icon needs to be sharp, strong, and serious, not curvy, soft, and playful (Twitter). There needs to be a background and one image inside. Not a bunch of pieces and parts. Just a background (white or black) and design/image inside (white or orange) For instance, Evernote has a green background and black elephant image on the inside.

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your icon design?

Sharpness
Cutting edge
Action

Hey guys!!! I just uploaded a picture (file) of a crow flying that looks amazing. It's a crow, but it's broken down into little circles. Now I don't necessarily want to see those same little circle, you could use square pixels or something else unique to make your picture stand out, but I would like to see the icon like this. A flying bird made of little parts of something.

I noticed a lot of you guys aren't taking the time to read the update to this brief or taking the time to look at the 2nd picture (file) of the bird I attached. Please take a look at these things.

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
