Create a simple, eye-catching iOS icon that communicates the exploding/disappearing block game dynamics of a new mathematics training app called "Quant Blocks" **OPTIONAL Create a SIMPLE splash screen that includes the text "Quant Blocks" and "loading" to smooth the transition into the app as it loads. Text alone is fine. Because this expands the scope of the design brief this point is optional. It is still possible to win on the strength of your icon design alone.

Try to use a single object that expresses the essence of the app. Start with a basic shape and add details cautiously. If an icon's content or shape is overly complex, the details can become confusing and may appear muddy at smaller sizes. APPLE iOS DESIGN SPECS The artwork should be scaled to all sizes required by Apple for universal iOS applications. http://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#DOCUMENTATION/UserExperience/Conceptual/MobileHIG/IconsImages/IconsImages.html GAME SUMMARY Two wooden number blocks drop from the top of the screen to present a problem set to the user one problem at a time Users input answers using a custom in-game wooden number pad Four visual effects provide feedback: 1) Correct answer = blocks disappear in a poof of smoke 2) All problems correct = last pair of blocks explode 3) Incorrect answer = screen shakes (visually) 4) New problems = displayed as silver blocks New/difficult problems appear as silver blocks. (Once a user has answered correctly they subsequently appear as wooden blocks)

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their button or icon.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
IndieDeveloper collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
