How Nagaraja Rivers started their button or icon journey
I'm an independent app developer working on my second iPhone app. This app will be a talking phrasebook aimed at tourists coming to Thailand.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The target audience is American and European iPhone owners, both men and women, in a broad age range 20~60, who might visit Thailand as a tourist.
I need an eye-catching app icon that will get peoples' attention when they see it in the iTunes app store. The product is a Thai language talking phrasebook app aimed at tourists. I need 2 square icons, 512x512 pixels or larger. They should be identical except one of them will have a lighter background color (for the "Lite" version of the app).
The image should be a cute cartoon picture of a young Thai lady wearing traditional Thai costume and greeting with a smile and "wai" gesture (hands together in front of chest). I will attach some pictures as examples of Thai costume and the greeting gesture. I would like a lavender color (CC66FF) to be used prominently in the icon. The image should show the lady from about the waist up, and the details should clear enough so that the icon looks good when it gets reduced to 57x57 pixels.
