MrJbQ7 got their new icon or button by running a design contest:
Create an Icon for Factor programming language
Check out MrJbQ7's Icon or button contest…
Factor is a high-level programming language that has dynamic features and a focus on performance, used by technical users and computer scientists, to create computer applications and solve problems on Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. For more information, see the website at http://factorcode.org.
What's your vision?
We previously ran a 99designs to make a "raptor" dinosaur logo for our website and an icon for use in our application. We would like a new icon, updated for the latest trends in flat and colorful iconic application design.
We want to communicate that Factor is a fast, dynamic, powerful "stack-based" programming language. The "raptor" or "velociraptor" dinosaur has been a fun mascot due to its geeky heritage mainly from XKCD comics. It would be great to keep a geeky, nerdy, playful and/or aggressive theme like this. Perhaps a photo-realistic or illustrated velociraptor, dinosaur footprint in a mud puddle, or ... use your imagination! The "stack" refers to a programming concept where you put objects onto a stack and then "compute" with them. For example, say you place the number 2 on the stack, then the number 3. Then you compute "add", which removes the 2 and the 3, and then places the number 5 on the stack. The icon could incorporate this concept... We plan on using this for the application icon (in resolutions from 32x32 all the way up to 1024x1024 for high-resolution displays). It would be nice if the winning design incorporates this desire and provides both higher resolution (more detailed) and lower resolution (less detailed) files for our icons. It would be nice to have an SVG version if the design is illustrated rather than bitmap.

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.
MrJbQ7 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!
Bigfam went above and beyond when designing our icon. He is very quick to respond and deliver. He makes sure that the needs are met and doesn't have any hesitation tweaking and redesigning to fit your needs. He delivers perfect files in what ever form you may need. I would highly recommend him.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
