How chrisdoble started their button or icon journey
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need an icon for my exploration-based iPhone app. The app records your movements using the phone's GPS and draws them on a map, showing where you've been. The map is initially greyed-out, but areas are revealed as you explore—essentially fog of war (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fog_of…_and_games).
The icon should communicate the app's focus on exploration. I think a map would be best, possibly showing where someone has explored. I'm open to other ideas, though.
