Exploring a possible direction for the aesthetic of the KANA app Im working on. Check the attachment for a full view.
Do you guys have thoughts? How do you feel about the placement/alignment of the text and icons on the face of the buttons at the bottom?

Nice job, man!
Nice, clean and fun way to learn how to write!
Y no iPad Retina display design?
@Nico Tzogalis it will be, Im just working through some options in low res first.
I like the shadows, really helps the buttons stand out since it's all the same color. Maybe the icons and text is centered in the button? Right now it looks like just the text is centered.
I think the text and arrows should be coupled together. The design starts to look a bit fragmented with everything is separated, as it is right now. I would group the text and arrows together, and center those groups.
Another designers thoughts. Looking really good Matt.
yeah man kick ass design. I'm loving it :)
And please don't sue me if I steal your design :P
@Charles Riccardi & @Anthony Fonte : That's exactly what I wanted feedback on. I went back and forth on that. I figured I'd throw it up on here and see what the response was. Looks like grouping the text and symbol in the middle of the button is winning.
Looking great, Matt!
@Matthew Daniels very nice interface design ++
The buttons' volume is wonderful.
I'm surprised no one has mentioned the size of the replay icon vs the size of the clear icon. Definitely buggs the crap out of me. Will fix that.
Well, I was planning on socially shunning you because of that icon-size recklessness, but I'm glad to see you repent.
Gorgeous color palette!
In Love with every pixel of this 400 x 300 shot man :)
Digging the yellow.
I was trying for a kind of soft, rubber feel. Is it there? What could I do to push it further in that direction?
It has more of a post-it feel to me, but I do see some softness in areas... specifically around the buttons.
I want this app!
Regarding soft rubber: you might try fiddling around with softer button edges. For kicks, here are some reference photos of the OLPC keyboard:
Of course, I realize there's the real concern of then falling into the uncanny valley of UI faux realism, à la Apple's iCal, Address Book, etc.
@Joe Bauldoff : Yeah, That's exactly the look I'm after. But, I guess I decided to trade off for sharper edges to give the buttons more presence. Maybe I can adjust the shading or texture a bit.
Thanks for those images btw. They were spot on.
I jizzed in my pants.
