Your burning app icon design FAQs, answered.

Everything you need to move to development. Your app icon design will be uploaded in the correct file formats based on your stated needs. Typically this means a layered RGB Adobe Photoshop or Fireworks PNG file that’s ready to be uploaded.

Since not everyone has the correct design programs to open these files (your developer will), you will also get web preview files in PNG or JPEG file formats.

Plus, you’ll get the full legal copyright, so the design will be all yours.
In a design contest, designers from all over the world submit concepts unique to your brief. You choose finalists, give feedback to hone the designs and ultimately award your favorite app icon as the winner. If ideation and seeing a variety of different design styles is important to you, we’d recommend a design contest.

On the other hand, if you have a clear idea of the style and direction you’d like to take with your app icon, or if you have a more complex design project, it’s best to work directly with a freelance designer.
Lots of ideas! If you’re looking for inspiration, explore 99designs for fantastic examples of icons created by our design community. 

Bring as many specifics as you can, too. Include platform(s), designs you like, brand details, images and any other specifications that would affect your design.

The more you give the designers, the better they can design an app icon for you!
Yes. If you have any specific images (like a logo) that need to be included in your icon design, please submit them to designers with your brief.
Your custom app icon design contest includes one winning icon. If you need a second icon for a different app, you have a few options: you can award multiple winners, run a second contest, or you can start a 1-to-1 Project with your winning designer to create the additional assets.
Absolutely (and we love it when that happens)! When your app icon design contest has finished, you can start a 1-to-1 Project with your winning designer.
On 99designs, designers agree to upload only original artwork, so each designer owns the rights to their design submissions until you choose your contest’s winner. During the design handover stage, the designer agrees to transfer the rights, and you become the owner of the copyright of your winning app icon design.
We guarantee that you’ll get a great app icon at any pricing level, but our higher-priced packages give you more design options and better support.

Here’s how it works: When you pay more, the prize for the winning designer is bigger, too. More experienced designers participate in your contest, so you get more high-quality designs to choose from. More options means additional time that's needed to review your designs. That’s why our Gold and Platinum packages offer dedicated managers to help streamline that process by writing creative briefs and giving your designers feedback.

When selecting your app icon contest package, think about how much time you’ll have and what experience you have writing briefs and working with designers. If you're still unsure, contact us for a design consultation.
Choose “Make your contest private” from the Contest options section before you launch your app icon design contest. This will prohibit designers from using their designs elsewhere, and your contest will be unsearchable on the web.

This will automatically attach a standard NDA template to your contest. If you prefer, you can also upload your own NDA.
We offer a 100% money-back guarantee within 60 days of payment on all App Icon Design Contests, except those with a guaranteed prize and those that have entered the Final Round. You can also call us anytime to help you rewrite your brief, reopen your project to ensure you get a good result and help you pick a winning design. Remember, if we refund your contest, you aren’t legally entitled to use any of the designs submitted to your contest.
