How smarterapps started their button or icon journey

Company name

Chat on Facebook for BlackBerry from Smarter Apps

Overview

Smarter Apps builds great apps for BlackBerry, our apps have been downloaded by over 4 million users. We are bringing some of the most popular apps found on other smartphone platforms to BlackBerry. Our apps include a YouTube application, a Wallpaper changer app and a Facebook Chat app. In this project we would like to redesign the Icon for our Facebook Chat app.

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

This product is targeted towards Facebook users who also own BlackBerry devices.

The application is sold primarily on BlackBerry App World, it is currently in the top 10 selling apps on App World.

Requirements

A new icon for our "Chat on Facebook" app for BlackBerry. The application allows users to chat with their friends using the Facebook Chat system from their BlackBerry. The icon should be representative of the Facebook style (for example using the Facebook purple color) and be indicative of Chat or instant messaging, such as a chat bubble or friends icons.

The icon should look great, fresh, professional, like iPhone icons.

The icon should not violate any of the Facebook or BlackBerry branding guidelines(no F letter or modification of the existing Facebook or BlackBerry logos), see these branding guidelines:
http://www.facebook.com/brandpermis…/logos.php

Technical Info:
- The icon should be provided in 480x480 pixel resolution as well as 60x60 pixel resolutions.
- The icon should be placed on a transparent background, the icon may fill most of canvas but not 100% of the background.
- The icon should look good on either a dark or light background
- Provide the original icon in Photoshop format, as well as 480x480 png and 60x60 png.

Attached Files:

- iphone_app_examples.png : Examples of other apps found on iPhone (many of these icons violate the Facebook brand guidelines because of the F letter)
