Cosjef got their new button or icon by running a design contest:
Twisted Pair utility for Mac needs a new button or icon
Check out Cosjef's Button or icon contest…
We create applications for the Macintosh platform.
What's your vision?
I am building an application for the Mac called "Twisted Pair." It is a utility that sits in the status bar on a Mac, and provides similar information to what the AirPort utility shows for Wi-Fi connections, but for wired connections. The icon needs to be used in three places: 1) On the app's page on the Mac App Store (512x512 PNG) 2) On the landing page for the app itself. (171x34) 3) On the Mac status bar. (19x16) I have included a sample screenshot from the Mac app store for another app, as well as a screenshot of the landing page. I have also included a number of PNG images; most are RJ45 sockets or jacks (yes, I'm clearly not a designer). The third requirement may be the most challenging; The icon designed for the status bar must show the user, at-a-glance, the status of the wired connection. This could be red, yellow, or green depending on the status. Or if a black-only icon is used, it must somehow visually communicate a failed connection to the end-user. Also note that the icon used in the status bar is constrained to 19x16 pixels in size. This size constraint may make demonstrating a failed connection difficult.
Like Apple's Human Interface Guidelines states: "A great app icon is not only gorgeous and inviting, it also conveys the main purpose of the application and hints at the user experience." I could not agree more. The app will be used anywhere a wired network would be chosen over a Wi-Fi connection: offices, hotels without wifi, home office, etc... It is meant to make using a wired connection as easy as using a wi-fi connection.
