Icon Design, Logo & Symbol Design Case Study for Client, A small case study of run away client with design rejects

Background: I meet this two partners who’s ambitions was as great as building social network empire like Facebook & Twitter. At the same time they were dreaming so big that they lost the touch of reality that they don’t have enough money to support their ambitious project so that they can pay designer for their money & work. So they played the card of ‘Your work doesn’t really fit with our project with true spirit’, So they said it in layman’s language that they don’t want to pay me for my work & efforts.

 

Note: I did not got paid for this project by client but never the less sharing with you all my hard work & efforts

 
Following are the Icons, Logo & Symbol designed for the clients:

iOS Video App Mockup Design Study by Mandar Apte

I was going through the idea that how one of india’s popular television channel’s proprietary iOS App implementation will look like?

 
So I get started with designing normal brief & decided designing initial three iPad UI screens.

 
So Imaginary iOS App would require to showcase India’s most popular channel’s daily soap’s episode who they upload online daily & weekly, that same television channel produces several genres of television shows & main stream Hindi, regional language movies.

 
Screen 01: Home Screen

 
So First screen should be ‘Home’ screen where user will come across where he taps on iOS app icon, On top Television serials & Bollywood movie main two option will be displayed & sub options as a tab bar, below that with slider of videos & episodes featured per season at bottom.

About Logo & Symbol Design Process:
I received up to date with minute details in description & answer for my questionnaire which I submit to all of my clients to fill in to get feel of the project.

 
Answers what I received gave clear idea that client himself describes,

 

“He want indiacharts.com to be highlighted with ‘i’ from india & ‘c’ from charts. And he requires his tagline to be in focus around which logo & symbol should be designed.”

 
Blog Tagline was as follows: ‘Market forecasting at it’s best. The complete technical analysis’.
