An icon for my application. I would like to be detailed here but I am a programmer lacking in any artistic creativity. I would love to draw on the artistic creativity of you without tainting your view on what I would want. Obviously, the icon needs to easily show what my application does. It should adhere to the Apple OS X Icon guidelines and best practices:
My application is primarily for running but would work for other areas such as bicycling, but that is secondary. I personally like icons that are not on the technically serious side but a little on the comical side, not as in funny but as in artwork that would appear in a comic, not a very detailed and accurate representation of the object.
Words I can think of that would go along with Race Pace (in no order) are: Racing, Pacing, Watch, Stop Watch, Charting, Start Line, Finish Line, Running, Calculating, Thinking.
I would favor an icon that looks good large and small over one that looks good only at a particular size. I would also prefer an Icon that could be used on a website as well and look good there, not just as an application icon in a launcher or the dock bar.
I would want the icon in a format that I can easily resize and export to various formats without a change in quality, i.e. vector graphics. A PSD would version would also be nice.
