my task is to create a logo 48x48 pixels to be used in an android app.
Its for an energy saving organization, so I am thinking about using green and yellow colours.
Also I wanted the logo to be recognizable and fancy for a small screen. (mobile phone)
I have attached a few prototypes and wanted your opinions.
I hope you will take time in commenting on the logos.
I like the teardrop. The yellow version looks too weak for me, green version much stronger.
Would suggest moving the text out of the logo - mainly for the reason that on Android the app name is displayed below the icon and the repetition would look odd.
If the name needs to be in the logo, suggest blending it into the main design to avoid the repetitive look.
Logo no. 2 is best.
The blue in logo 1 is too aggressive (even if you'd like to also use it as a "home" link, i wouldn't use that colour there) and the yellow in logo 3 is kind of lost and not well visible (besides, green is just better in this context).
Hello you both,
thanks for commenting. I will think more and try to use your suggestions. @ paulsimongill: What do you mean by saying that a name is displayed below an icon on the android app? I have an android phone and when I am online, I do not see the name being shown underneath a logo....

The icon for each app has its name display below it (Browser, Maps etc).
I believe all android icons include the
app name below the icons? If so, I would use the entire 48X48 space for imagery
and take advantage of the free space below the icon. However, if you are using
the branding of the company and it requires the logo and the name to be
together then I would stick to the original approach.
