nearmint got their new icon or button by running a design contest:
Redesign icons for an App that sparks your heart
Check out nearmint's Icon or button contest…
Heartfelt helps you to do more for people who are important to you. The user adds contacts (a contact is like a todo list) and inputs all the good things he has done for the contacts. We will indicate how much the user has done for a specific person using a heart next to the contact's name. I personally sometimes have the feeling that I want to do more for my family and friends, but I need to be reminded to carry out these thoughts. By using the app and doing things for people who are important to you, you get a warm feeling inside. Cherish it!
What's your vision?
I need six icons. 1. App Icon My idea for the app icon is something "shining from the inside", but somehow I feel like a "heart" should not be used. Maybe a flame? I currently have a heart and it does not seem right for the app icon. I have attached some photos that I found interesting. 2. Idea Icon Currently it is a lightbulb, it is a little bit stupid 3. Idea Done Icon Currently it is the "Party Pooper" Icon from Slack. 4. A "Thanks for being here-Icon" / Appreciation Icon Currently we are writing "Thank you for being here." in a fancy font. 5. E-Mail Icon The current one doesn't look that good. 6. Code is on the way-Icon Current one looks very bad. 7. Optional Icon(s) I could have chosen up to four other icons that I want designed by you. Instead I invite you to look at the screens of my app and submit anything you feel could help this app now or in the future. This is optional. You can win this contest without submitting this part.
I have attached some ideas and you can find the current screens for the app attached as well. Go wild!

And then… they selected a winner!
From the start, Arther gave me a great concept for the icon for my app, Porchswing. I enjoyed seeing the brainstorm sketches to illustrate his thought process. He really elevated the design by not giving a super literal interpretation of a porchswing, but a playful reference to a swing in the P of my icon. He was quick to respond and make the adjustments that I asked for. I am very happy with the result and would definitely recommend Arthur to others.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
