Most of you have heard of Bitcoin, but there are over a thousand other cryptocurrencies out there!
For this challenge, you're tasked with designing just a symbol / icon / mark for a fictional cryptocurrency service. This service is simply one that will send users a notification (email, text message, instant message, etc..) when a given cryptocurrency rises or falls in price.
Think of it as a logo without any type (no wordmark).
The whole purpose of these challenges is to get better at design. In this case, it's logo / icon design. There are a few design fundamentals that you should consider:
I tried to make a coin in an envelope, as a coin is usually used as the symbol for cryptocurrencies. The envelope is obviously for messaging. I'm not completely happy with it, and i feel like the coin might be a bit too big, but would like some criticism on it :)
EDIT: Reuploaded with a fixed export!
Not sure i like it, but it is meant to represent the messenger pigeon, i guessed that most people would choose email or letters so i went for something more authentic. I believe the concept is a good idea but i think the presentation could be improved :) Goodluck to everyone!
