Bri and I worked on this for a surprisingly long time. This is probably the 20th iteration. But now I’m finally at a point I really like it.
I wanted to accomplish a few things with the new version:
- Use an existing beaver and its style from the game
- Have some kind of action or danger represented, but without adding too much complexity
- Accomplish standing out and distinct from most of the color schemes I see in the iOS App Store currently
This icon does all three for me. I’ve even mocked it up against the featured list to see how it might or might not stand out:
Your milage may vary, but I for one am pretty pleased.
