Matt Bolger got their new icon or button by running a design contest:
CSIRO's Workspace needs a new set of icons
Check out Matt Bolger's Icon or button contest…
The Commonwealth Science and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) has developed a scientific workflow engine called Workspace. Workspace is an application that allows users to create, modify and execute scientific workflows. A user interacting with Workspace visually creates a network of components known as operations, where data flows from one operation to another. Each operation has one or more inputs which it uses to calculate one or more outputs.
What's your vision?
CSIRO's Workspace team requires 8 icons designed: one for each of the components of an Operation (see operation.png for what an operation looks like - the annotations match the numbers below): 1. Operation background 2. Operation icon 3. Master input (shows / hides the other inputs) 4. Master output (shows / hides the other outputs) 5. Input 6. Array input 7. Array input element 8. Output Please see the attached brief (WorkspaceIconContestDesignBrief.pdf) for information about each icon. Some specific requirements about the icons: - The icons will be arranged on-screen using the same layout as the attached image (operation.png), so please submit designs showing the icons layed out this way. - Each of the icons must be able to be scaled, so they should each be delivered as a vector graphic (SVG). - The Operation Background and Operation Icon should be in 50x50 icons by default (but scalable). - The Master Input, Master Output, Input, Array Input, Array Input Element and Output artwork should be in 20x20 icons by default (but scalable), and should be able to be hue-adjusted so that they can be highlighted in the application. Other guidelines that may help: - The Master Input and Master Output can be thought of as buttons that "Show" and "Hide" the other inputs and outputs (think of a "Chevron" or expand "Button"). They should feel like they are components of the Operation Background. - The Input, Array Input, Array Input Element and Output might be thought of as different types of "Plugs", "Sockets", "Arrows" or "Connectors". They should all have a similar look and feel, and should be very simple in design - there will be lots of them on the screen at once.
We would like designers to create the following icons to start: 1. Operation background 2. Operation icon (shown sitting on top of the operation background) 3. Master input (shown attached to the Operation Background) This will help us to narrow down the style before designers start working on the other icons.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Icon or button starts at $269.

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.
Matt Bolger 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.
