Ayqooi got their new icon or button by running a design contest:
We need a colourful, attractive icon for a Kids Game on Android!
Check out Ayqooi's Icon or button contest…
Mobile Apps for Kids. We create a range of educational and fun kids games for kids from ages of 3 and up
What's your vision?
We need an eye catching icon for our app. The app is still in development so we don’t have many screenshots available yet. But we have provided 3 screenshots of the app as attachments (PNG format) so please look at that for the general color scheme of the app. We've also provided a screenshot of many kids app icons for your inspiration (IMG_0025.PNG). The app is an education game for kids aged 3 to 10 years old. The images in it are “cute”, “colourful”, “simple” and attractive, because this is what appeals to kids. Bright colors are very important as it helps to keep kids engaged. So here are the key points we’re looking for in the icon: 1. We want a “mascot”. So we want the icon to have ONE character in it, such as a baby, or an animal of some kind. But whatever “mascot” you choose it MUST be CUTE and ATTRACTIVE to kids. 2. Kids love bright colors and simplicity. So we want the icon to be bright and simple. 3. The main color of the app is yellow (please have a look at the screenshot with the yellow background below for the exact yellow color). The secondary color of the app is purple (also a screenshot of the purple background) and red (the red arrow in the red_arrow.PNG). So it maybe nice to use either the yellow, purple or red in the app icon in some way. Perhaps as the background (because the mascot can be ANY color you want). 4. The “mascot” should be HAPPY and should be doing some sort of “action” or “pose” that encourages the user to come and play the app. The mascot can be ANY color you want, and does NOT have to be any of the 3 main colors of the app. 5. The background to the icon should be quite plain, and probably either the yellow or the purple or the red that is in the screenshots below. You may choose to include something in the background, but there shouldn't be more than 1 or 2 things in the background because the icon will be quite small on users phones and it will be hard to see small things in the background anyway. And the mascot should definitely be in the foreground. 6. The icon should be square and the dimensions should be 1024x1024 pixels. We do NOT want any rounded borders. A perfect square please. 7. One of the main recommendations that Google gives when designing app icons is not to overcomplicate the icon. Putting too many things into the icon is not recommended because the icon will be relatively small (usually 72x72 or smaller) on most phones. So make sure your design does not look cluttered when its size is reduced. We'd also like to clarify what types of animals should NOT be used as the mascot: 1. Penguin 2. Squirrel 3. Dog The reason is that we already have some other apps that contain these animals. The deliverables we expect should include: 1. The original format of the file used to design the icon (Photoshop or Illustrator or otherwise file) 2. PNG version at 1024x1024 resolution (or if this is not possible then please confirm with us the highest resolution you can provide) We might ask for anything else that you used to produce the icon.
We'd also like to clarify what types of animals should NOT be used as the mascot: 1. Penguin 2. Squirrel 3. Dog The reason is that we already have some other apps that contain these animals. I've attached a screenshot of my iPad screen that shows a lot of icons for kids apps which you can take inspiration for. We like most of those kids icons, and they range from simple to more complex, but the thing they all have in common is that they all have an attractive mascot/animal. Here are also some other examples of kids apps whose icons we feel are colorful and sophisticated. These icons represent the level of design that we are expecting from the winning icon: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=air.cz.cfc.androidgp.ToddlerAquariumLite&hl=en https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.droidhen.turbo https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sinyee.babybus.farm https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sinyee.babybus.number https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tabtale.dinodaydressup https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sx.puzzingo https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.divmob.matchgame https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.feasy.app.memory.Fruits https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.com2us.comeonbaby.normal.freefull.google.global.android.common These examples are not necessarily related to flashcards.

Please make sure that the icon you design captures the concept of a flashcards app for kids.

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 icon or button.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Ayqooi 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
And then… they selected a winner!
Bigfam went above and beyond when designing our icon. He is very quick to respond and deliver. He makes sure that the needs are met and doesn't have any hesitation tweaking and redesigning to fit your needs. He delivers perfect files in what ever form you may need. I would highly recommend him.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
