This is the best site out there for achieving unique designs and fast!

I just get so irritated with local designers producing designs that they want you to use. It's not about what the designer wants, it's about what you want and they are there to help me to achieve my goals.

When I came to design contest I was looking for a face for my company, never in my wildest dreams did I think I would have one inside of 7 days to my complete satisfaction. To think that inside of one week I had 155 awesome designs to choose from was amazing!

  • What if I do not like any entries?

    We offer 100% Money Back Guarantee policy which, unlike other portals, refunds 100% of what you paid. If you don't like any of the design entries we will refund 100% of your payment.

  • Do I get Icon Design's copyrights transferred to me?

    Yes, every graphic design made here at DesignContest will have Design Copyrights transferred to the client from the designer, unless opted out by client.

  • Can I protect my Icon Design project with the Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA)?

    Yes, as part of the enhanced privacy feature client can have all who access their Icon Design project agree to the Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA).

  • What if I'm not sure exactly what I want?

    You've come to the right place! One of the biggest benefits of DesignContest crowdsourcing platform is the amount of choice and unique Icon Designs you will receive with your contest. You can then look through to find elements or entire designs that catch your eye and work with the designers towards that perfect Icon Design.

  • Should I run a contest or just hire a designer?

    Maybe the most difficult part is finding the designer who really understands your needs and design style requirements. This is why it is best to start a contest, find your winner and (as enjoyed by many here) continue working with your designer through One-on-One project individually. We make it easy, simple and fast for anybody to find their designers and get the unique graphic design done in the most efficient way.

  • How many entries can I expect in my Icon Design contest?

    The number of entries to expect is often determined by your Icon Design contest budget. Other customizations like for example Multiple Prizes, Guaranteed Contest and Featured Contest will attract more designers and promote creativity. You can see approximate expected number of design based on your budget and all available Icon Design contest's modification and promotions by clicking Start a Contest (no payment is required).

  • What should I include in Icon Design contest details?

    The contest Brief details should ultimately tell the designers what you need in your Icon Design. Things like your company history, what do you want the design to reflect, how and where the design will be used, what designs or styles you like and don't like out there, is very helpful to the designers. When starting the contest our easy brief wizard will take you through all the steps that you need to have the complete Icon Design brief.

  • Can I upload images to show designers?

    Yes! You can upload images and other files for the designers when you start your contest or you can add these files to your contest brief after your contest goes live.

  • Can I ask for modifications after I receive the Icon Design source files?

    Absolutely! Most contest holder's take about a week to ask for modifications to their Icon Design. Once you are happy with the source files, you can close the contest completely and release the funds to the designer.

  • How long will it take to get the Icon Design source files, after I choose a winner?

    After you have chosen a winner, the designer has 24 hours to prepare and send you the Icon Design source files.

The icon is associated with my iOS iPhone application "GrowingNetwork": you can find the application description and see the current icon at

As the application is already distributed, the icon has to look "roughly the same" still in blue with better color gradient, smoother,  ...

The notion of network is represented by the Wifi like logo divided in two sectors: the angle of the sectors is increasing counter clock wise to suggest a 'growing network'. This was an initial attempt, but I'm not designer ... But I would like to retrieve this idea in the new design.

What is missing in the current icon design is the notion of people (the App aims to be a growing network of friendly people). So I'm interested by a mix of a network logo with people logo.


Our Awaken alarm clock application for Mac OS X is in need of an icon refresh. We want to update our existing icon to better fit in with the icon style introduced with Mac OS X Yosemite.

Here's a link to our current icon:

Here is a blog post regarding the design style change introduced in OS X Yosemite:


We are about to update our website.  The homepage layout we plan to implement includes 12 icons representing different features and benefits of the system, and those 12 icons are what we are looking to have illustrated.  The uploaded (very rough) visual includes rough content for these icons, that I have cobbled together from stock pictograms.  Along with the accompanying 3 line blurbs, these roughs should give an indication of the concepts we want each icon to convey, but please ask if anything is unclear.   

If you want to do a couple of samples for me to feed back on before spending time on the full set, I will endeavour to get back to you as quickly as possible.  (I'm currently in UK time zone).

The rough images attached are intended to give an idea of content to represent the functions and concepts, not to direct style or constrain composition.  I have used floating elements on a white background, but if you prefer to work with a partial frame that is fine too.  (I don't think we would go for a fully boxed icon however).

We would like the illustrative style to have some 'personality' as opposed to generic software vector icon style, but still be simple and clean enough that the content reads clearly at small scale.   

Certain elements, such as the seating plans, audience types, screenshots on devices etc have an unavoidable complexity in their content so we would like to compensate for that by keeping the finish or rendering simple and smooth.  We would like a 3D finish but with a smooth CGI style planar / airbrush texture overall.  Nothing cartoony or with a pastels or painterly texture

In terns of colours... we would like to stick to the charcoal grey / blue / purple palette that you'll see in the background of the header photo images in the rough homepage layout uploaded (…the ones where there is stage lighting in the background).  The logo oranges and white can be used as a highlight colour where necessary.    What I hope for is charcoal grey to be dominant structural "drawing" or base.  But where you want to use a bit more colour in the mid-tones with perhaps use shades of cerulean /indigo /lavender as flashes and hints. 

Where there are features within the content of the image to be highlighted then the logo orange/white should provide that function. 


Need an online icon for gaming and profile pics. Was thinking something like the red bull logo but gold and silver. Or something along the lines of ying and yang but with bulls. Gold and silver are the colors I would like to use. Would like some depth to the icon. Icon should symbolize the struggle between good and evil. Right and wrong. Also represent Strength, stubbornness, determination.


I would like you to help me by designing an awesome icon for my new App! A design that people click on and want to download.. The app helps people connect with other users. How it looks is up to you... Be creative :) The app will be available in the appstore and google Play in about two months. What do i need? - A great icon design (recognizable, unique, fresh, something different) - The app itself is orange and white, but you can use every color you want. just make it look awesome! I love creativity. - only specific sizes can be uploaded in the appstore/google play. When I choose your design, I want you to mail all the needed files in the right size/formats. Cant wait to see your designs! NOTE: THE APP ISN'T CALLED STARTUP, ITS A NEW COMPANY WITH ANOTHER NAME. I DONT WANT THE NAME IN THE ICON.


Open Channel, Victoria's Screen Resource Organisation is celebrating 40 years of supporting early career film, television and digital media makers in Victoria. We are seeking a special modified anniversary logo (NOT A NEW LOGO) just to use for the next 12 months to celebrate this anniversary. This might be something very simple - in terms change - we dont want to redesign our existing logo, just add a special touch. Our existing logo is attached as an EPS file. Attached is an example of ANOTHER organisation (AWG) who made a special 'Gold Version' logo for their 50th year, the Australian Writers Guild, just as an idea of how simple the change may be in the successful design! So in summary, 1. keep the essence of our logo 2. add a special touch for our 50th 3. keep it simple! Good luck and thanks for your designs!
