We need an app icon for this new iPhone app, "TakeLessons Now". This app is like a tutor in your pocket. Students will use it to get 1-on-1 help with homework, tests, and more. Ace that exam. Solve that problem. Raise those grades.
Here is some input from our team on what we'd like the app icon to incorporate or convey:
- "Speed" -- something that equates to right now, on-demand, timely, moving fast
- "Live" -- connecting a student to a live tutor is a differentiator for us, so have some notion of live video chat with a person
- "Homework" -- something that imparts it will help them with homework, school, finals
- "Simplistic" -- app icon should be minimalist in approach
- "Copy" -- If possible, work in the word "Now" or "TakeLessons Now" to the app icon (not strictly necessary)
Some ideas of iconography that we've thrown around:
- Having a camera lens or camera icon to denote it's video based (Instagram, Facetime, etc)
- Text books, grad cap, pen/pencil and/or backpack to denote school/college based
- Having "A+" grade somewhere to denote better grades
- Focus on a unique shape
- Keep a limited palete of colors.
- Prefer not to use a photo
- No text, except "Now" is an option
- Be creative!
We're a fan of solid color backgrounds with white icons (flat), but feel free to experiment.
The text under the icon will be "TakeLessons" so the app icon needs to really convey what the app is for.
