Project description

This is the second version of the brief, 24-06-2014 updated. We need a logo design for a new mobile app. Its name is Ice break, this app helps people to contact with others they do not know, so that's why the name, ICE BREAK. People will use it should be excited about it, keen about meeting someone they really want, they saw one person they like close to them, but they use the app to talk. Because it is an app logo, we need an icon or symbol, to be the most important element. It is going to be displayed in small areas, for example in the home screen of the iphone when the apps are selected, so we can use the icon or symbol without the text "ice break" on that place, and everywhere else we can use it with the "ice break" text integrated. An example for this is the well known WhatsApp or Tinder​ logo. Tinder is a good reference for us, because it uses a simple icon with the text and without it, and works fine. The text ICE BREAK must be minimalist, modern, it should be recognizable too without using the icon. THIS IS THE CORE OF THE NEW BRIEF We mentioned that we want to play with the words "​ice ​"​ and ​"​break​"​, and we mentioned too that we are open to ​all suggestions​, but we have not received any other new ​suggestions​. We need to explore more with the concept of ​"​meeting ​ for the first time"​ too. About colours, it can be light blue and light orange, please be careful of using them, they can be too shock together. You can replace orange by using another colour, yellow for example. About shapes and style, we are attaching some few logos that represent the style we need, it is clean, inviting, modern and fresh. Updated are ideas of logos too, giving directions of style and colour usage. Updated is the look and feel setting too, more minimal, more modern, less loud. Thank you all

  • Hello CH, could I please get some feedback on design #5. The 'b' in Ib also doubles as a ? in order to portray the idea of strangers meeting. #6 is the same design incorporated on the iPhone homescreen. I hope you like it
    • Hello stearnso, please review the brief again, some updates are there. So far we like the logo #18 for your reference. Thank you!

      |--| I have just submitted #24 for your consideration :)

  • http://www.designcontest.com/logo-design/ice-break/entry/4/ Only one design per canvas is allowed, you van change colors or position of icon/text, but you can't submit different font or icon style on single canvas
  • Hi CH, creator of #8 here. I thought of portraying the two strangers as ice cubes, which melt with time because of the warm liquid in the glass (the warm liquid, which "unify" the two strangers, stands for your app). I just wanted to let you know that other color combos and font choices are possible. Thanks!

      |--| Thank you Nasdas, It was a bit hard to get the idea of your logo, without explanation it doesn't speak by itself. Please have a look to the brief, we just updated with new helpful info. Also, the approach we have liked so far is the #18, maybe you could start from there. Thanks for your work

  • Hi CH. here is my entry #9 #10 ^_^ hope you like it. thank you.
    • Hello Zerger. Thank you for your logos. These ones are too similar to whatsapp, in the brief we mentioned it just for explaining the usage of the logo. The phono icon is not really suitable for this case, we dont make phone calls or voice messages. What we do is to help people to get in contact for first time by sending a text message, the one who brake the ice. Thank you

  • hi, i just submitted entry #15 and #16 and would like your feedback on them. I have since noticed an error in entry #15 in the color matching and have fixed it in entry #16. I apologize for that inconvenience Any suggestions you have or changes you would like made to my entries are greatly appreciated.
    • Thank you Rlubker1. Your options are a bit far from what we are looking for, regarding of colours and shapes. We just updated the brief and got somo logos for reference, please have a look. Thank you

  • Thank you Seegor, your approaches do it well. These designs are clean and modern and plays with the ice and chatting. Im commenting now on this one particularly, because black is not the colour for this app, we need it to be more inviting. We would like to continue with this ideas but considering also to include orange, this colour is key too, otherwise the logo will turn to be too icy. Maybe it can represent the text bubble somehow, but please taking care of the good looking of the logo. It can have gradients or two shades of same colour to avoid doing it too shock, we know orange is stronge. Thank you
    • Dear Franco, Thank you for your feedback! Please check #29 and #30 if they are closer to what you wanted... Kind Regards

    • Hello Seegor, thank you again. We have seen good things from you so far. As you can notice we have decided to invite people to generate something else than just the ice. More like people and their first date, because so far we have got many options that finally represent in a strong way an ice. Please if you have any question just tell us. Best regards

    • Dear Seegor, would you be available for a one-on-one proyect for keep going with this logo? Please let me know, thanks Regards

    • Dear Franco, I am available if you wish it... Kind Regards

  • Hello! my design is #28. Do you have any comments for me in order to improve that?
    • Hello Lenatr, we need something more clean and modern. Better use of colours, not too saturated. Play too with the idea of meeting for first time, a date. Thanks!

    • I uploaded two NEW designs #39 and #41. What do you think?

  • We like this idea, could you polish it more?? THANK YOU
    • Hi CH, I uploaded #27 based on your feedback. Not sure if this is in the right direction though. So please provide feedback for improvement. Thank you.

    • Hi CH, Sorry, I thought it was okay to put more than one design on one canvas since my level allows me to submit unlimited designs for one contest. Since it's not allowed, I'd accept the rule and fix the problem. I've uploaded them separately now. Please let me know if you need more modifications. Thank you.

    • Thank you Junseiyu, I saw your logo #40. As you can notice we have decided to invite people to generate something else than just the ice. More like people and their first date, because so far we have got many options that finally represent in a strong way an ice. We need to see to something regarding to a date, a first meet, people who have broke the ice... Thanks for your work Best

  • http://www.designcontest.com/logo-design/ice-break/entry/11/ You have uploaded more than one design on canvas
  • Thank you for the design. We like the idea of breaking the text, but the icon is not quite clear, please refer to design #18 for ideas!
  • Hello everyone, after receiving everyone's work, we decided to updated the brief, please review it, we need more different ideas. Everything has been helpful for the process. Thank you
  • Hi, its me again and I just submitted a new entry, #38 I modified the basic design and completed the squares. Please let me know if you like it more or less than before. All the best, Ryan
  • Thank you GjR, the idea its good, but a bit noise regarding to the elements within it, in small sizes is not going to be able to show clearly that those lines represent people... U can explore other colours too. Thank you
  • Hello Franco, please take a look at my design #60 and #61 mockup (#62 cleanest versión). Any feedback would be helpful KIND REGARDS [JOBZ]
