Your burning icon and button design FAQs, answered.

A Icon & Button Design Contest is a competition between designers from all over the world to create the very best custom app icons or web buttons based on your creative brief.
 
You purchase a Design Contest package and write a creative brief that describes your icon or button design needs and ideas.
 
Designers from around the world review the brief and submit button or icon designs to your contest. You give feedback and direction to the designers to help them perfect their designs through two rounds of competition.
 
You select a winning icon or button design.
 
The winning designer receives the prize money, and you get the production-ready, winning design files with full copyright.
Everything you need to move to development. Your app icon or button design will be uploaded in the correct file formats based on your stated needs. Typically this means a layered RGB Adobe Photoshop or Fireworks PNG file that’s ready to be uploaded.
 
Since not everyone has the correct design programs to open these files (your developer will), you will also get web preview files in PNG or JPEG file formats.
 
Plus, you’ll get the full legal copyright, so the design will be all yours.
Nope! Not at all. The more you know about the design process, the better. However, when you launch a custom button or icon contest, we’ll walk you through everything step-by-step to make sure you provide all of the information we need to ensure you get a great icon or button design. Plus, our support team is here to answer any questions and provide feedback to you during the contest.
Lots of ideas! If you’re looking for inspiration, explore 99designs for fantastic examples of icons and buttons created by our design community.
 
Bring as many specifics as you can, too. Include dimensions, designs you like, brand details, images and any other specifications that would affect your design.
 
The more you give the designers, the better they can design icons and buttons for you!
Yes. If you have any specific images (like a logo) that need to be included in your icon or button design, please submit them to designers with your brief.
 
Unless you request otherwise, your designer may also use stock images (purchased from a third party) in your design. If a designer uses stock art in a design, they’ll tell you which images they are and use watermarked versions of them in their entries. Once you choose the winning design, you’ll need to purchase the stock art and provide it to the winning designer so they can complete the design.
Your custom icon design contest includes one winning icon or button. If you need a second icon for a different app or another button for a different item in a product family, you have a few options: you can award multiple winners, run a second contest, or you can start a 1-to-1 Project with your winning designer to create the additional assets.
Absolutely (and we love it when that happens)! When your button or icon design contest has finished, you can start a 1-to-1 Project with your winning designer.
On 99designs, designers agree to upload only original artwork, so each designer owns the rights to their design submissions until you choose your contest’s winner. During the design handover stage, the designer agrees to transfer the rights, and you become the owner of the copyright of your winning button or icon design.
We guarantee that you’ll get a great button or app icon at any pricing level, but our higher-priced packages give you more design options and better support.
 
Here’s how it works: When you pay more, the prize for the winning designer is bigger, too. More experienced designers participate in your contest, so you get more high-quality designs to choose from. More options means additional time that's needed to review your designs. That’s why our Gold and Platinum packages offer dedicated managers to help streamline that process by writing creative briefs and giving your designers feedback.
 
When selecting your icon or button contest package, think about how much time you’ll have and what experience you have writing briefs and working with designers. If you're still unsure, contact us for a design consultation.
A free, no-obligation design consultation is included with your icon and button design contest. This is a risk-free opportunity for you to speak with one of our team members about your custom icons or buttons, and learn how great design can help you.
 
Our consultants are experienced in working with icon and button designers and running design contests, so they can answer any questions you might have.
Choose “Make your contest private” from the Contest options section before you launch your icon or button design contest. This will prohibit designers from using their designs elsewhere, and your contest will be unsearchable on the web.
 
This will automatically attach a standard NDA template to your contest. If you prefer, you can also upload your own NDA.
We offer a 100% money-back guarantee within 60 days of payment on all Icon and Button Design Contests, except those with a guaranteed prize and those that have entered the Final Round. You can also call us anytime to help you rewrite your brief, reopen your project to ensure you get a good result and help you pick a winning design. Remember, if we refund your contest, you aren’t legally entitled to use any of the designs submitted to your contest.
99designs gives you multiple button and icon design options to choose from, each professionally created just for your product, and all within an affordable price range.
 
When you work with a freelancer, you have to spend a lot of time reviewing their portfolios, then hope their style will translate to your your needs.
 
Design agencies will give you high-quality designs, but that’s usually accompanied by a large price tag and long time frame.
 
Every business has a different set of needs and that’s exactly why these different options exist. Your choice boils down to determining what’s most important for you.
