What's your vision?
An app icon for the mobile game "Brain Yoga". The icon will be used in iOS and Android. Therefore rounded corners are ok, but they should be iOS 7-style rounded corners. I have an icon for this game that I like ok (PSD attached), but it does not communicate that it is a "brain game" very well. Frankly, the current icon could be for almost anything. (The flower in the icon is also used in the game as part of the logo.) New icons that use/adjust the current flower design could be ok. I am not averse to using the flower in general, since I think it does almost convey "flourishing mind". The flower starts out closed and opens up on the main menu screen as a bit of animation, which I like. It might be hard to keep the flower and make the icon say "brain game" though. One thing I like about the current icon is that I think it conveys quality and looks appropriate for older people, since it does not look gimmicky (e.g., no explosions, no comic sans or other cartoony writing, no images "jumping out" of the icon.) I'd like to maintain that niche if possible, while putting more emphasis on the fact that it's a brain training game. I have also attached a real main menu screenshot from the game and a PSD that it was based on (the PDF is slightly different). You can see additional in-game graphics here https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.megafaunasoft.brainyoga&hl=en and here https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/brain-yoga-mobile/id660526568?mt=8 The icon should probably match the style of the game (natural textures and colors, peaceful/quiet design, nonspecifically Asian/zen themed). Abstract designs could be ok too, as long as they convey "brain training game". I don't have any better ideas than the current icon, so anything goes really. I would guess that "fiddly" designs, with a lot of different elements, will not work. The game is supposed to be simple and approachable for an older audience, with no high scores, timers, noises etc. I do not really like the current top brain games icons so I cannot point to anything comparable out there that works for me. The standard icon for a brain game is a picture of a brain and a bald person's silhouette, butI think there must be some other possibilities! In general, I do not find anatomical pictures of brains too appealing. UPDATE BELOW I think I have to acknowledge that it might be difficult to avoid the sideways-brain motif, or a head in profile. Since everyone else uses this type of image, it's recognizably the image for brain games. Here are some issues I have noticed with the first batch of entries. - Too much yoga. I want people to know it's a brain training game, and not confuse it with a yoga app that teaches you poses. - Brain too anatomical. This one is tough to pull off, but a human brain is not the most appealing sight, nor the most relaxing. Sorry, I don't know the best solution here.... - Colors and textures too saturated, or too flat. One of the leading entries uses a wood grain, which I think works better for this game than a flat, saturated pink or something else "unnatural".
