We are a german software startup named Kreuzverweis. We have developed a software named Annotator for Aperture that we will sell through the Apple Mac OS App Store. Therefore we need a logo for our App! Annotator for Aperture is pretty much a photo-tagging plugin for the photo management software Aperture from Apple. More informations on the Annotator for Aperture are available here
The target audience of our software are users of Aperture who are often professional, semiprofessional and hobby photographers.
***Our logo idea***
Our software helps the user to better and faster tag his photos. To visualize that the logo should include a photo, a tag and a pen. The pen should be writing the first character of a new keyword on the tag.
We want the logo to have a simple, clean and Apple-like style.
***shape and background***
An good example for what we have in mind is the logo of iPhoto for Mac OS but of course with a pen and a tag instead of the camera. The logo has to be square, the background should be transparent (cf. iPhoto logo).
You have creative scope relating to the content of the photo. It can be a typical holiday photo, a photo of a sight or whatever you think is suitable.
Instead of the tag you can also try a note, a post-it note or a label.
Instead of the pen you can choose a pencial, a ballpen or whatever looks cool.
In terms of colors you also have creative scope. The colors should go with the corporate colors (orange: #FE7D09 and blue #0066DD) on our website http://www.kreuzverweis.com
The App logo will primarily serve as a Mac OS icon. Therefore it has to meet Apple´s requirements for Mac OS icons that you find here:
We prefer a vector version of the logo to a bitmap image in multiple resolutions. If you provide the logo only as a bitmap image we also require a 1800x1800 pixel version for printing purpose.
The logo should NOT include the name "Annotator for Aperture".
Have fun, we can´t wait to see your blueprints! Let us know if you have questions or need any additional information.
