Continuing the pattern of updating all of my Android applications to include the new, mandatory high-resolution application icons, I’ve been working on a new logo for my dice rolling application, Simple Dice. After messing around with it for a while, I finally managed to come up with something that looks great, and is unique when compared to my other high resolution application icons. This new icon makes use of the “What Do We Do All Day” font by Heather Taylor (no relation to me). I used a spiral background to visually symbolize the movement of rolling the dice, and layered a few copies of the dice image on top of each other in order to create an almost three dimensional look and feel, as well as a subtle glow behind the text and the die itself. I will be using this new high resolution icon for both the free version and the $0.99 donation (advertisement-free) version of Simple Dice in the Android market.
