Hi all! I'm looking for a creative designer to create an icon (not a logo) for a my company. My company is; Caffeine Industries and I design/develop Android Apps, iPhone/iPad apps, Websites and other software. Coding has really eaten my time and I'm spread way too thin, I rather enjoy design... but I just don't have the time. *I'm also a full-time professional Firefighter for my "day" job.
I include all that info because the icon I want created should be a really cool metaphor of what I do; I.e. Jack of all trades, Firefighter robot, A futuristic tractor w/ tracks like a tank that is fire engine red with fire engine elements OR a fire engine from the future with tons of technology reference. The Icon should be a cross between the Iconshock and Shutterstock vector artwork style. Bring your best ideas and metaphors!!!
I've attached a screen-shot of one of my apps for you to see my style.
The icon needs to be: Modern, rendered, matte/minimal gloss, tactile, and textured, top-lit or side-lit
I do NOT want; Cartoonish, cheap feel.
THIS IS A TEST; its the first time I've ever not done the entire project myself, and I'm stepping on a limb here. If the successful bidder really delivers, I will certainly have more work for them in a manner of days. Show me what you've got!
Payment will be as follows:
30% payment on delivery of 2 or 3 creative Icon design concepts that can be refined
70% after finalized icon has been delivered in all required formats
Delivery of 1 (512 x 512px) icon in editable PNG or EPS. Adobe Illustrator formats with all associated fonts and required elements embedded in order to allow necessary editing to the raw Illustrator file in the future.
Please provide samples of the best icons you have designed in your bid. Please post a p.m. with a way to access your portfolio with relevant works. It will give a better indication of your style and help decide.
*I'm willing to take a chance on someone less experienced, describe your ideas in detail.
