How GuruliciousLife started their button or icon journey

Company name

iSphere

Overview

i'm an individual, not with corporate budget : )
i need a unique icon for iSphere, my 1st iPad app.
i am a graphic designer, but have no time, though i will be critical ; )

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

the iPad app (later iPhone + desktop maybe) is for all ages or walks of life.
anyone interested in media management.

it's like iPhoto mixed with iTunes mixed with YouTube.

organizing your images (jpg, png, gif animations, wallpapers, icons etc.)
with simplicity, flexibility, social features etc.

unlike competition, it's not simply a wallpaper app, but manages all your graphic media, plus it's a social community where you show off your work and sell it if you wish, the rest being free content!

Requirements

icon as logo represents iSphere™
as sphere of all possibilities
handling all practical purposes
as full-rounded as globe, world, life
intelligent/interactive/integrated…

i leave creativity up 2 U, go wild

LOOK:
- sensual, emotional, vibrational, spiritual, sexy (in abstract way : )
- light, friendly, joyful, deliciously edible, inspiring!

ELEMENTS:
- (™)
- modern
- slick but organic (not stiff, maybe newage-y is fine : )
- visually stunning, different
- texture
- depth/hole
- use shadows
- use glow
- use reflections
- user transparency
- more glassy than metallic
- as colorful as you wish (colors evoke emotion well...)

top EXAMPLES:
don’t mimic – show off your calibre : )
