Appzoo got their new icon or button by running a design contest:
Wanted: Icon for sleep recording/alarm clock app
Check out Appzoo's Icon or button contest…
AppZoo is a small software company specialised on mobile app development.
What's your vision?
We are looking for a new app icon for the upcoming free edition of our sleep cycle alarm clock app called WakeApp. WakeApp records your body movements and sleep sounds at night. It wakes you up when you are in a light sleep phase. Have a look in iTunes Preview: https://itunes.apple.com/en/app/id392358256 In first place we are looking for a simplistic icon that visualises the app's functionality: sleep recording + alarm clock. We were thinking of an alarm clock symbol combined with an audio recording sample (see provided draft to get the idea), but other ideas of creative combinations of symbols like -red recording light -a bell -microphone -sunrise -... with an audio sample/sleep cycles symbol are very welcome. Second, the design should be as minimal/simple as possible (without breaking the first requirement). Third, the icon should be catchy and stand out in a bulk of icons. It should work best on a dark background, but should not fail on a bright background. The icon should have a serious, technical, scientific and upmarket look. It should NOT make you think of fun or game. Colours should approximately match the current app design (see iPhone screenshots on iTunes Preview), that is: yellow/orange/red,blue, white, grey, black. Or in other words: avoid using colours that do not exist at all in the current app. Further we like: textures, vivid colors, embossed style, unobtrusive shades, gradients, shines What we DON'T want: -words (except for "REC" that would point to the recording functionality) -3D -photos We compiled a list of app icons we like/don't like (iconIdeas.jpg). This should give you a good idea of the look we are looking for. Depending on the design, it has to account for high and lower resolutions: HighRes artwork - 1024 x 1024px -> more detail icon resolution: 114 x 114px -> less detail The final icon design should be provided as an Adobe Illustrator file. If you have any questions feel free to ask, we will answer them as quickly as possible.

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.
Appzoo 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.
