What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need two matching buttons designed for the iPad. One is for sharing. The other shows a picture of a tree.
The buttons must have simple designs because they are at 72x72 pixels on the iPad 2.
The buttons are circular and should be white designs on a black background. Do not use any color, but you can use shades of gray. I include an example illustrator file with a preliminary sketch. I already designed a sharing button but it could be improved. Also the two buttons must look good together - similar line weight, spacing, and style.
The tree should consist of a main trunk and some branches. Also I think it would look good with some curves suggesting the outline of the leafy part of the tree, but keep it simple. I think it looks good curved to the right.
I am ok with a simple flat design, but I would also be interested to know what it looks like if the button has a glossy or inset look.
