The new twitter account PickletReader needs an avatar. Probably the same identity as the yet-to-be developed PickletReader iPhone app.
So I’ve been playing with icon design today. Not really an area of my expertise, but I like doing it. This is the concept. It’s cartoony, it’s a touch-screen mobile device and it’s a face, and it has the slider element in the foreground. The slider looks a bit like a mouth in this version, but I’ve de-emphasized that in subsequent revisions. Also thinking the nose is a bit much.
I like the idea of an interactive splash screen on the app where the eyeballs follow the slider thumb movement.
