Design an Icon for LibrePCB #6
The current icon is downloaded from the internet (it's license allows to use it for personal and commercial purpose). Even if the icon looks pretty nice, it would be better to design our own icon/logo, to be sure it is really unique.

Here my suggestion what to choose exactly:
Maybe some more explanation on what LibrePCB does (to someone that does not know what PCBs are and how they're developed) would be great, right at the beginning. That helps to get a better picture of the requirements.
I'd drop the requirements for ICO, ICNS and PNG. As long as we get a logo in vector format, we can create those ourselves. Instead, I'd simply state that the logo should look good in 16x16, 48x48, 256x256 and 512x512px (retain the note about simplifications).
What abou the second option mentioned here: http://support.iconfinder.com/ownership-and-licenses/can-an-icon-be-used-as-a-logo
You could ask the designer of the current icon to create a logo just for LibrePCB.
I'll try to add it.
True, but 99designs has the advantage that we (hopefully) get dozens of designs, not only one. So I think the chance of getting a very nice icon is much higher than asking only one designer :)
