Jeremy Cowgar got their new icon or button by running a design contest:
Race Pace needs a new icon or button design
Check out Jeremy Cowgar's Icon or button contest…
An application for Apple OSX that allows one to create various pace scenarios for a given race, then choose one with the level of effort that they believe they can deliver for the actual race. Thus, allows an analysis of many variants before picking what best suits them.
What's your vision?
An icon for my application. I would like to be detailed here but I am a programmer lacking in any artistic creativity. I would love to draw on the artistic creativity of you without tainting your view on what I would want. Obviously, the icon needs to easily show what my application does. It should adhere to the Apple OS X Icon guidelines and best practices: http://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/userexperience/conceptual/applehiguidelines/IconsImages/IconsImages.html My application is primarily for running but would work for other areas such as bicycling, but that is secondary. I personally like icons that are not on the technically serious side but a little on the comical side, not as in funny but as in artwork that would appear in a comic, not a very detailed and accurate representation of the object. Words I can think of that would go along with Race Pace (in no order) are: Racing, Pacing, Watch, Stop Watch, Charting, Start Line, Finish Line, Running, Calculating, Thinking. I would favor an icon that looks good large and small over one that looks good only at a particular size. I would also prefer an Icon that could be used on a website as well and look good there, not just as an application icon in a launcher or the dock bar. I would want the icon in a format that I can easily resize and export to various formats without a change in quality, i.e. vector graphics. A PSD would version would also be nice.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Icon or button starts at €179.

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.
Jeremy Cowgar 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.
