**I'm open to any design ideas.** Here are a couple I thought of, but I will also appreciate any original ideas from the designers. Feel free to run an idea by me if you want.
- City skyscrapers are on one side with a "glowing" night sky that only shows a few stars, and on the other side is a country road or farm or something with a beautiful star-studded sky above it. The transition in the middle could be a winding road or whatever you think of. This would just emphasize the difference between the night sky in the city versus the country.
- A graphic of the globe (North America) at night with all of the lights, and also showing some stars in the backdrop of space.
Again, I'm totally open to any ideas, those were just a couple that I thought of.
Also, as a side note, I love icons that have that "3D" look (not sure the technical name for it). Not sure if/how that would fit into this app, but maybe there's an idea out there (telescope? globe at night?). Entries don't necessarily need to have this format, it's just a thought. Examples of what I'm talking about:
One final note, please do not include the name of the app in the icon.
I want this to be a very interactive contest, so if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch. I will respond promptly to all design submissions. Thank you for participating!
