Filtering is the main concept I want to convey through this icon.
Think eBay, bargains, search results, filtering (in multiple ways), junk and rare sought after items.
At this stage I have no particular colour palette in mind. I'll provide feedback as we go.
Icon must be 512x512 px - for Macs (to stand up against other icons on the dock), PCs and Linux. I have a future version planned for the iPad and iPhone.
I'll be updating my website and the app to a more visually appealing and exciting look in the near future. I'm hoping this icon will springboard the process.
As a member of the eBay Partner Network I must abide by their terms and conditions. For this competition the relevant part is :
"You will not display your company name or trademark in an uneven, staggered, multi-color format that dilutes the distinctiveness of the famous multi-color eBay logo"
The word eBay must NOT appear.
