BenClarke got their new icon or button by running a design contest:
Mobile App Icon Needed for Local Citizen Journalism Startup
Check out BenClarke's Icon or button contest…
Our iOS + Android app called "InstantNews" will enable people to capture citizen journalism news photos/videos and then share them with their local community in real time. The community can then collaborate on news stories by adding their own photos/videos, and can also vote news content up and down so the best contributions get the most exposure.
What's your vision?
The app logo should be clean/crisp and very very simple, and should also be extremely brandable (we love minimalistic app icons such as Twitter, Quora, Tinder, Skype, YouTube, Uber, Facebook, SnapChat, WhatsApp, etc.) The app is location based, contains a map, and users can capture news photos & videos via the camera from within the app. Other themes from the app that could potentially be incorporated into the icon are real-time/instant communication, as well as the community collaboration aspect (similar to group chat). We are not interested in an overly graphical icon as detailed and multi-color icons are very hard to brand. We are thinking a unique twist on the letter "i" could work provided it's unique enough to be brandable. We like the color blue for an icon (blue on white or white on blue), can be a very dark blue like Tumblr's icon, a very light blue like Skype's icon, or a medium blue like Facebook's icon.

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.
BenClarke 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.

Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
