DaveDelight got their new button or icon by running a design contest:
Make a Crazy Cool Stopwatch Icon?
Check out DaveDelight's Button or icon contest…
We develop apps and extensions for the Chrome Web Store (https://chrome.google.com/webstore).
What's your vision?
Hi! Can you make a new icon for our Chrome Web Store app? The icon should convey the idea "Stopwatch" as unambiguously as possible to users across the world. I made this a "blind" contest so you don't have to worry about other people ganking your work. The style and theme of the icon (funny/serious, color theme, bubbly/straight edges, etc) doesn't matter very much so long as it is original and quickly recognizable as a stopwatch. You can be creative here but mind the general tips for Chrome Web Store icons listed at the bottom. A vector format is required (we prefer inkscape-compatible SVG or EPS). If you want to provide a different vector format, please provide a hi-res transparent PNG render of the vectors (in case we can't open your vector file with inkscape). Target display size: roughly 100x100px This icon may considered a trademark by applicable law which means your design should be original work. There should be no text in the icon (it has a multilingual audience). Numbers are ok. The icon will usually be on a white background, so design for that. Ideally it should look good on dark or colored backgrounds, too (adding a transparent white outer glow which would be hidden on a white background is one easy way which has worked well for me, but certainly not required). Our app's page is here (with our crappy icon yours will replace): https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ggnidjbcahhbnleinchgobfnabopeioh Generic Chrome Web Store Icon Tips (from http://goo.gl/OeKN1): - Use SATURATED colors if possible; they tend to work well. - AVOID using a lot of white and light gray. - Make sure the EDGES ARE WELL-DEFINED. - AVOID large drop shadows. It's OK to use small shadows for contrast. - Make the icon FACE THE VIEWER, rather than having built-in perspective. - If the icon is square with rounded corners, use a 12-pixel corner radius. Let me know if there's anything that's unclear, and thanks very much for taking a look at this project :)

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.
DaveDelight 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.
