Biomatters needs some stylish web app icons!

We develop tailored web apps for targeted commercial digital biology analysis.
What's your vision?
We require a suite of eight web application icons for our new corporate website. Our site is to represent and portray the look and feel of an 'app store' type site. As such, the icons must look and feel like application icons, reminiscent of app icons on a modern smartphone. We would like to have an iOS7-esque design, using flat UI concepts with an intelligent usage of gradients to portray depth and texture. Please see the attached image for a hastily hacked example of what we are after. Also see our website (biomatters.com). DESIGN SPECIFICS For applications where the logo is of a single color, we would like the app icon background to represent the color and have the logo appear as a cutout. For applications where the logo is multicolored, we would like the app icon background to be a neutral gradient, displaying the multicolor logo. We would also like special attention to be paid to the relative proportion of the logos to the icons. Furthermore, our site uses a reactive design so icons must have acceptable clarity when scaled to mobile device resolutions. DETAIL SPECIFICS We are looking for a total of eight icons, with four of them being slight variations of each other. Use the attached image, with the top-left icon being '1' and the bottom-right being '8', as a reference. 1 to 3 are for apps in our existing product line. 1 is a monochrome icon (orange), whilst 2 and 3 are multicolored icons. 4 will launch a custom design section of our website. 5-8 (bottom row) are corporate 'due diligence' links, and take users to other sections of the main page. These are all to have a unified color and look. DELIVERY SPECIFICS We would like to receive original images, scalable format (i.e. SVG) images and rendered bitmaps for the winning design. Bitmaps should be rendered in 512x512, 256x256, 128x128, 96x96 and 64x64 formats. The winning design will also provide design criteria and specifics such as: - icon/logo measurement ratios - standalone icon backgrounds without logos - hex values and details for all colors and gradients (RGB and CMYK) - any custom graphical fonts used - any other relevant design metrics used
EPS logo for icon 1, 2 & 3 added. For 4 through to 8, use the apps_2.0 file for a guide, but feel free to improvise.
