We need a fun, flashy, hip icon for our latest social networking iPhone app called "Christmas Cards"
Christmas Cards is a fast and fun way to send a beautiful card to a friend in just three touches. Select the card from our gallery, personalize the message, and send! We turn the card into a nicely formatted HTML email and send it off straight away using your iPhone email settings.
The icon needs to grab attention and set us apart from the competition in order to increase clicks and users. There are lots of Christmas apps out there! It should be high contrast and bold so that it pops from the screen. We have no color preference, have fun with it! The icon should incorporate the word "FREE!" into the design perhaps as a banner or other visual element.
When a person sees the icon for the first time, the first thought that should pop into their mind is "christmas", the second thought that should pop into their mind is "personal greeting card or letter"
Attached are images of icons that we like for reference. We have also attached screenshots of the new gallery design (not in app store version yet).
