Creative brief

The buyer added updates to the brief. Read them.

What do you do?

Business Name

DH Services

What is your industry?

Gay mobile dating apps

Describe the target audience for your icon design

Our target is masculine, 30-50 year old gay men who are single.

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

These icons are for members who pay. They will appear on their profiles. They should feel proud and prestigious for having these icons appear on their profiles.

How many different icons do you need designed?

Two standalone icons that will appear in a profile (see screen capture of profile)
1. PRO
2. X

In addition, the X and Pro will appear with the following words/logos and we need a consisten look for all 4 options.


Do you have specific size requirements for the icons?


What icon design styles do you like?

3D / dimensionality and weight

What colors do you want to see in your icon design?

1 (or 2) of the following colors:

Black / gold / silver / yellow

However, the background of the app is BLACK.

What colors do you NOT want to see in your icon design?

We don't want to see 'friendly' or rainbow colors/icons. We want sexy colors that fit with the rest of our brand.

What adjectives should best describe your icon design?


Do you have additional requirements or links you'd like to share?

We need an X that will stand alone as an icon in a profile page and replace the small SUPPORTER icon that appears on the profile page of the app (see photo 1.png and photo 2.png), next to the MR. CODE icon. The X needs to stand alone and also work with our logo (Mister.png)

Additionally, we need an icon for the term PRO that will appear in the same location as the X on the profile page and also needs to work with the logo.

We have included two Xs that we like (the black with the yellow) and the 3D silver. These are slick and powerful but aren't original enough for us to use here.

To learn more about our product, please download the MISTER APP from the App Store or go to MISTERAPP.COM

When using the word MISTER, it must either appear ALL CAPS and be the same font as our logo. Helvetica Black I believe.

Brief updates

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
