App cover shot: The action shot should include playing with other players, bounty and guns. Meanwhile, it should be simple enough to capture in a glance and feature a more "abstract" gun. By adding banners to the page, we could easily sum up the idea of shooting to collect bounty.

PART THREE


APP ICONS I ADMIRE: 

  • Pic Stitch: simple, bright colors and easily shows what the app is for
  • Instagram: Unique and plays with the artfulness of photography
  • Sosh: easily recognizableand stands out, while enahncing brand identiy
  • Eat St: Shows in a snap what the app is for (food trucks)
  • The Onion: clean and gets the point across.
  • New Yorker Cartoons: simple and easily recognizable

What's common in the apps in my categories

Style

  • Glossy, cartoony, 3D
  • A lot depends on the type of action game

Symbol

  • Characters' faces mostly

Colors

  • Mostly varied and vibrant
  • A lot of golds and blues

Text

  • Seldom
  • Often white and all counts

***

How to differenciate my icon

Style

  • Make it cleaner
  • Less background image/clutter
  • Possibly illiminate the background so it's just the character

Symbol

  • Use one of the guns
  • Create a non-character symbol that summerizes the west, while still encapsing what the game is about: exploding cacti
  • If using the character, make it highly distinctive and simple

Colors

  • Simplify: the less colors the better
  • Most the apps are pretty vibrant, and so simplifying the colors and making a high-contrast between main image and background might be ideal

Text

  • If we decided on text, I would recommend on maybe doing initails. But our name, as it stands, is too large and would be more distracting in the icon.
