I really enjoyed to work with Captain. Not only did he hear what I requested, but also made it more awesome with his unique sense. He has a good eye for design and made sure the icon looks great on various wallpaper. Really recommended for anyone who wants unique and nice design!

Valletta Ventures is a young software company specialising in elegant and functional editors and IDEs for Mac OS. Our software is used by scientists and software engineers to write both software and technical documents.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We want an icon for 'RailSide', a Mac OS development tool for the Ruby on Rails web application framework. We have included the current icon, which lacks sufficient visual impact. Our ideal icon will
(1) Explore the rail-side theme, possibly including objects and activities that quintessentially occur rail-side.
(2) Have the red colour scheme common to Ruby on Rails related software, but be sufficiently elegant to fit in to the Mac OS Dock.
(3) Be an appropriate shape for a Mac OS icon, which unlike iOS icons are not constrained to be square. The background should be transparent.
(4) Not contain text.
Our current icon is included solely for completeness, we are not looking for different versions of it. An example icon that we like is the Xcode icon, but again we are not looking for a copy of it.
We require the icon to be delivered as 512 x 512 and 64 x 64 PNGs
