For the Windows software (XP/Vista/7) used to transfer and analyze measured data from one of the electronic indicators (the DPI-Type50) we need a nice program icon.
As we sell a (very successful) mechanical indicator of the same name (Type 50), we'd like to incorporate its well-known design into the icon.
What these devices mainly do is measure a pressure curve of one cylinder of the engine at a time while it is running.
Please find both indicators, mechanical and electronic here:
For an older software for the DPI2 (Windows 95), we used the shape of the Type50-indicator in the icon. Please find images of the ugly old icon and a recent photo of the Type50 indicator attached. Though we still like the idea of using the Type50-indicator in the icon, we also thought about having a more "electronic" or added "digital" appeal to it.
The software will be base of future devices as well, so it shouldn't contain the name "Type50" ("DPI" or even the Leutert-Logo would be ok).
Regarding the color scheme, Leutert uses RAL5010 as its main blue, so it might be helpful to use fitting colors.
I attached the splash screen of the software only for your inspiration.
Finally, our customers are professional industrials which might not like modern "App-icon design". So we suggest not trying too uncommon designs. :) We're looking forward to seeing your designs!
