Holger Rapp got their new icon or button by running a design contest:
Create the branding for the programmer's text editor for the next 25 years.
Check out Holger Rapp's Icon or button contest…
Swiboe is the programmers text editor for the next 25 years. It is a free, open source tool, developed in the open, life on Twitch stream and collaboratively by an open community. Swiboe stands for Switch Board Editor since it is helping to connect external tools to collaborate to make shaping text very fast.
What's your vision?
It needs branding, and the first thing is a high quality vector-graphics icon that will be it's application icon. It will be displayed here https://github.com/swiboe and in the upcoming website. The designer is free to design a logo at will, these are some information which can, but do not need to be incorporated into the design: - Swiboe stands for Switch Board Editor (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telephone_switchboard), since it enables plugins to collaborate to offer advanced functionality. Longer explanation: http://www.sirver.net/blog/2015/08/21/design-for-the-ideal-text-editor./ - It runs on Mac OS, Windows and Linux. Aiming for a good looking Mac OS icon will fit the bill for the others. - Swiboe allows for very fast plain text editing as it is needed for programmers writing code. - Swiboe is endlessly extendable. - Swiboe is for specialists, but offers tutorial guidance to improve. - Swiboe should eventually have an Icon, a Logo (with text) and a cute mascot. This is the first design contest for the Icon - the other stuff will be build to fit with the icon. The icon should be identifiable as a coder's text editor. Speed, collaboration/communication and the switch board are the unique selling points of Swiboe.

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 icon or button.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Holger Rapp 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.
