Afradjy got their new icon or button by running a design contest:
Revolutionizing software for concrete - Create 4 Quadrel product icons
Check out Afradjy's Icon or button contest…
Digital Site Systems is an innovation-driven technology company for the concrete industry. Quadrel is its market-leading software of quality and performance management solutions for concrete producers, contractors, and testing consultants allover.
What's your vision?
TASK: Design a family of 4 icons for the Quadrel products iService, iAlerts, iBiz, iCost. (Quadrel is the family brand name for the suite of software products). ICONS:A family of 4 icons. Used on website and possibly in product menus. You can read about the 4 products here https://www.quadreliservice.com/Products_Overview_Graphics.php. We have an apple like "i" naming convention (which predated Apple). Some notes (and suggestions, want to see your own creativity!) per product icon: 1) iService - https://www.quadreliservice.com/Pro The core module. Basically the center where you control everything (the concrete raw materials -> creation -> production life cycle). Here you design concrete, run lab tests, do concrete strength analysis, and can see all your supplier, cost, and product data. Possible icon ideas: cool rendition of name iService or just iS, or some graphic portraying graphs/center of control / front-end to production system. 2) iAlerts - https://www.quadreliservice.com/Products_CLI.php Module that monitors and alerts on manufacturing process of concrete (tells you what's going wrong, what you can do). Alerts come in reports or via texts/email in real-time so you can make sure you are producing top quality concrete according to customer needs. Icon ideas: name or iA, exclamation point, etc. 3) iBiz - https://www.quadreliservice.com/Products_CLS.php Module for sales management. Helps salesmen make quotes (price at which will sell concrete products to contractors) and manage margins. Icon: name or iB, upward trending graph 4) iCost - https://www.quadreliservice.com/Products_CLS.php Module for keeping track of material costs, cost histories, mix costs. icon: name or iC, dollar sign? STYLE: Please check out our website www.quadreliservice.com. You can see our theme colors are purple (84,66,132), orange (255,163,71), and blue (103, 180, 225) and gray. We are going for a modern, clean, bright look. We are a technology company for the construction industry (particularly concrete producers) so we want to have a cool yet simple and strong image. Examples: http://www.icrete.com/, marketo and spark by marketo www.marketo.com. SOFTWARE: Our software runs in Windows and is VB.net or VB6. We are going for a UI makeover as well but icons are first step! ** We are interested in developing a longer term relationship with the winner. We have loads more to make-over! :)

Full_plant.jpg: example of concrete plant. qc_batching_charting_all-3.jpg: example of Quadrel software iAlert module's concrete performance analysis. graphic designer attempt - collection of icons that designer suggested for representing concrete terms (such as truck, plant, mix [recipe for concrete]). Concrete is made from water, rocks, sand, cement, and chemicals; these items are combined in a truck at a concrete plant, mixed in the truck, and then poured out at a job site for building etc. Visual example: There is a graphic (https://www.quadreliservice.com/Products_CLI.php) that is a step in the right direction but not quite there yet. The notepad and pencil represent the engineer's recipe for the concrete (mix design) and the notepad with lock represent the protection of the engineer's recipe (so that it will be followed exactly during the production phase). The notepad with the little barrel on it represents the Batch Ticket (the receipt for the actual concrete produced, details contents and quantities used). These are our current ideas for representation / look but definitely a work in progress. We want image to resonate yet be simple and fun which is hard to do for this industry. * overall point: This is a technical, enterprise software for the construction industry. Our software is industry-changing, so we want the look to match its power. We want our imagery (icons etc) to be coolly professional like other industries such as tech.

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.
Afradjy 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.
