JDeRose got their new icon or button by running a design contest:
Tech Zone Badge Contest
Check out JDeRose's Icon or button contest…
Our brand: Tech Zone is a Social Knowledge Engine in which engineers from all over the world collaborate internally to solve complex customer issues and leverage that knowledge to create valuable articles to share with our customers externally. Our Target Audience: Highly technical engineers that are experts in their technology domains. They are competitive and take pride in the badges they achieve in Tech Zone. Engineers look for opportunities to distinguish themselves among their peers and look for ways to showcase their contributions. Our Values: Help each other solve technical issues. Create high quality content to be shared internally and with our customers and sales partners.
What's your vision?
Goals: We want your help revamping our badges! We need the new badges to visually convey the rank and importance our engineers have achieved. Engineers should aspire to achieve higher badges and should clearly understand the expertise and contribution of the engineer by the badge. Colors & Icons: We are looking for color schemes that inspire gamers! What We Need: We are looking for your assistance replacing our 13 rank badges with more vibrant and game inspired badges. Images should be fun and visibly distinct down to 24x24 pixels. Below you will see the current list of badges in order of importance: (see "current_badges.jpg" -- attached) Badges that identify a specific level of contribution in Tech Zone (from highest to lowest): Elite Level 3 Elite Level 2 Elite Level 1 Expert Level 3 Expert Level 2 Expert Level 1 Specialist Level 3 Specialist Level 2 Specialist Level 1 Associate Level 3 Associate Level 2 Associate Level 1 Beginner Level Observer (have logged in enough times to be an observer) New Member (recently registered in Tech Zone) Badges that identify a specific Role in the Tech Zone: Community Administrator Moderator - person responsible for monitoring the discussion boards Technical Content Engineer (TCE) - engineers focused driving the creation of valuable content Technical Writers - they are focused and reviewing documents created by TCEs to make sure they are compliant with the guidelines Expert - an engineer that is the expert in his technology field Founder - for the engineers that are the founders and creators of Tech Zone Examples We are looking for designs that convey the importance of being at each rank. Users should be able to look at the badge and immediately go "Ah ha! that engineer is a Specialist Level 3 and they are really contributing a lot...I need to contribute more so I can get that badge" or "Hey, I'm an Expert Level 1 and now I want to do more to be an Expert Level 2!" (see "example_badges.jpg" -- attached) In the previous example the badge represents a rank for of "Elite" and the level is represented by the stars in the badge. It's not easy to understand a users level and rank with our current badge design. See examples below. (see "current_badges.jpg -- attached) Our current Community Administrator and Moderator badges: (see "moderator_badges.jpg")
Something we think is kinda cool are the badges on "Google A Day" (Google+). You can see them here by selecting "Stats > View All": https://plus.google.com/games/play/683315009228
