Which One Won? Creating an app icon for college students

A company designing a fun mobile app to connect college students ran this PickFu poll to test out two icon designs. With the attention span of young people being shorter than ever, this company knows it must get their icon design right the first time around.  

Both icons are bright and jump out at you. Option A uses multiple colors, while Option B sticks with just red and white. Each app icon features a different animal as well – the first uses a parrot while the second uses a seal. 

Do you know which app icon won?

If a picture is worth a thousand words, it’s especially true when it comes to e-commerce photos. The first thing your potential customers will look at in your products listings are the photos you’ve included.
