What's your vision?
I'm looking for someone to design a 3D logo for my new application, μSynth. It's a molecular simulator tool so I'm looking for something clean, simple, 3D, shadowed, with alpha (transparency), clever, related to the program initials "μS" (that's a mu symbol not a 'u'). It's optional but if you want to put some additional graphics in besides the "μS" it should be chemistry, biology, math or physics related. I'd like to try bubbly, fun and happy mixed with serious and professional. See this short design guide for icon details: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa511280.aspx The template (attached) has the desired resolutions and color depths. You're not required to use my crappy template (or colors), just wanted to show a reference image. The five layers are 256x256x32, 48x48x32, 32x32x32, 24x24x32, 16x16x32. remember, the image has to look decent at all the resolutions and smoking hot at the highest 256x256. thanks!
This is my first time on 99designs but if this works out I'll want to follow it up with some splash screens and web graphics later.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their button or icon.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Joel2012 collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
