Poker Friends is a social poker game for iOS and Android. It is designed to allow friends to play together, unlike other poker apps that let you play live against strangers. It has both "turn-based" and "live" game options, allowing a group of friends to enjoy "Poker night with friends" all day long.
The target audience are poker players that want to play with their friends, aged 18-45.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We want to create a new app icon for Poker Friends (Should be designed for iOS, but we will use the same icon for Android as well).
Our app is live and can be downloaded from the iOS AppStore or the Google Play store. It is called "Poker Friends". There is also a video that can be watched here: http://www.pokerfriendsapp.com.
We are not very satisfied with our current icon. We feel that it does not stand out and look attractive enough, especially for a game and such a competitive environment. When users search for "Poker", the list contains a few very attractive looking icons and we are competing with them for the user's attention.
Designers - feel free to be creative, yet keep in mind that there should be a relationship between the app icon and the inside of the app. It doesn't have to be direct and you don't have to use any elements from inside the app though. It would be best if you explore the app a bit, watch our video, get the feeling of what our start-up is all about.
Poker Friends is something in between "Zynga Poker" and "Words with Friends". Perhaps that can help understand the concept and the message to convey.
Also - a few app icons we like:
* Fresh Deck Poker
* Zynga Poker
Do's and Don'ts:
- No text should be inside. A single letter is OK.
- Best if it has some 3D visuals (Look at the 2 examples above) but not overdoing it
- Keep it simple yet detailed enough to look professional in large sizes
