I'd like an app icon for an iPhone & iPad scoring app for board games. The app will let users fill a scorecard with player names & scores, the name of the game played, date, and more. The basic design of the app will be similar to Apple's Notes app (see attached apple-notes-screenshot.png), but tailored for scoring data. The layout will be similar to a paper scorecard, like the attached real-life-scorepad.jpg.
The first (of many) scoring app will be for the game Dominion (http://www.riograndegames.com/games.html?id=278).
I need an icon created for the Dominion scoring app . It needs to communicate two things: that the app is a scoring app, and that the game being scored is Dominion.
The following requirements are what I think might be a good icon. If you have a different design that might work, feel free to disregard these and just submit it.
1. The icon should take the shape of an old score pad, like the attached file (real-life-scorepad.jpg and real-life-scorepad2.jpg) and mimicking Apple's Notes icon (attached as apple-notes-icon.jpg).
2. The top of the icon should look like the binding material that keeps a stack of scorecards together.
2.1 The binding should be a dark color.
3. Below that binding material should have something that resembles a scoring sheet. Do not use text in the design if possible.
3.1. The paper should be a light color, a textured off-white color perhaps. Please do not copy the color theme in the attached images.
4. In addition to the score sheet in #3, there should be an icon or an object representing the Dominion game.
4.1 One possible design could have a stylized D similar to the D in the dominion logo.(https://skitch.com/yood/ge64e/dominion-game-278-gamerules.pdf-page-1-of-16).
4.2. Another possible design could have a pair of cards that are inspired by Dominion randomizer cards (https://skitch.com/yood/gksnj/domin…ge-2-of-16), arranged like a pair (https://skitch.com/yood/gksb1/skitc…122-105057).
Again, these are suggestions on what might be a good design. If you have better ideas, feel free to submit them.
Looking forward to seeing your awesome work! Feel free to ping me for clarifications.
