I am a programmer and previously just put an icon together for my Android app Proverbs Reference

but i took this class to improve on it. And to get better at design in general. Here is my previous icon.

I am also redoing the icon for an app that I am working on called mINFORMANT. I am doing that icon according to Apple guidlines. Here is my existing attempt at an icon. I was given mostly negative feedback because it is apparently more of an illustration than an icon.

For the redesign I am simpliying down to an icon with a detective. Here is my moodboard for that project.

Which inspired the aesthetic for the brand. Here is an implementation on a social network

As you can see in the tweet, I previously wanted to partner with a designer. Because of classes like these I think I will be able to get by for a while. What do you think?

Anyways, here is the updated logo for mINFORMANT for iOS
