The best learn accounting apps are here: Accounting Flashcards & Lessons, Debits & Credits Game, and the Accounting Quiz Game... But how to make the icons look cool? How can you make anything accounting cool, useful, and succinct. App icons gotta be interesting to push, like, hey "install this" and at the same time I want to present the 3 apps together holistically so the user gets the "Full Accounting Play Package."
So below are various mockups, branding conceptions, and app icons I would really appreciate your feedback on.
It is important to know that even though most may "like" one icon or another... in actuality may actually install another icon for other - even subconscious reasons. So it it is tough and for sure a designer will need clean things up.
The main goal is - A nice clean icon people are excited to download (or can tolerate) and the 3 kinda go together. This is the user appeal to those actually using the product. But... There is another market here, such as institutions and even private companies. So the branding needs good conversions (people who see it, want to click it) but, also be appealing to potential strategic partners.
So it is a great challenge and I am happy to share my iterations here - along with references in case we are discussing over email.
And so... the Accounting Play Branding Images
All I need is... 3 core images, 1 Spanish version... 1 Chinese... and a logo for the financial ratios app. So why not just use letters with my logo colors??? Only through crowd feedback, design, and testing - compared to date... will we know the "best" logo.
