LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
Apptizr is currently a website that offers personalized iPhone app recommendations to users based on their interests, similar to StumbleUpon or Pandora. We are currently only serving the iPhone platform but we are looking to expand to other platforms over time (Android, BlackBerry, etc). The service is live although it's currently in private alpha. Interested designers should sign up for the service to get a sense of what the service is about. Our tagline is "serving up great apps based on your tastes".
You can signup for our invite only service via the link below and this ten letter invite code 'CrowdSprng' (CrowdSpring without the "i" and without quotes)
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We would like ideas for a new logo design that can be used both for our website AND an iPhone app icon (100px by 100px). We currently have a text based logo (as seen on our website). We would like the new logo design to include a text based elements (you can use our existing design or recommend new ones) plus a graphical based design that can go on the left of the text for the website logo AND as a stand alone icon for an iPhone app (not yet developed). The graphical element needs to convey what apptizr is about - helping users easily find mobile apps. One idea is around an image of icons of a bunch of mobile apps served on a silver platter (playing on our tagline), but we are definitely open to all ideas. We also like the general color schemes of our current logo/site but are open to change.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
Our target users are heavy mobile application users. Currently our service is limited to the iPhone although we may expand to other mobile platforms over time (Android, BlackBerry, WebOS, etc). We want these mobile app users to think of Apptizr as the easiest and best way to discover high quality and cool apps for their iPhone or mobile device. They should think of Apptizr as cool, high tech, and easy to use.
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
We like the Open Table logo and iPhone app icon because it has the name, but also the graphical image that depicts tables and is versatile for both their website and the iPhone app. Mint.com's logo and iPhone app icon is also good in this way. We like the 4Square logo and iPhone app icon because it's simple and unique.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
For our website logo the design needs to include the name "apptizr" (again, you can simply use our existing logo or you can create your own), but it also needs a graphical element preferably to the left of the name. The ideal graphic is roughly square in dimension so it can be used for the image to the left of the "apptizr" name but also as a stand alone icon for our iPhone app. The design should look good with our existing color scheme of our website (silver/ grey / orange). Given the fact that the icon needs to work as a iPhone app icon, it needs to look good when it's dimensions are small (say 40px by 4px), so it shouldn't be too complicated.
