Challenge Summary

Hello Topcoders! This week is Computer Science Education Week and because of that, we are running our own Hour of Code - Topcoder Hour Of Code PLUS!

In Topcoder, we have 4 tracks:
  • Data science: Competitive Programming (Algorithm) & Marathon
  • UI Design
  • Development (Code)
  • QA

Most of us only focus on one track. It's your time to share one hour to try a different new track, it might help you to open a new world!

This challenge is a fun challenge for Non-Design Members to learn how to use design tools and create their first design.
As this is a "Fun Challenge", the task is super easy!

In this challenge, please use Adobe XD or Sketch and create one Heart icon for us!

Tutorial to create a simple Heart icon:
Important Note:
  • This is a fun challenge. We will randomly choose 10 eligible members who submitted a valid submission as winners, each winner will receive $25.
  • If you never participated in a UI Design challenge, then you are eligible. We will check your challenge history in your Topcoder profile to see if you are eligible.
  • You will only need less than 1 hour to finish the requirement of this challenge, but the challenge will last 24 hours for the timezone concern.

  • Submit a zip archive with a jpg/png of your icon design and your source files (xd/sketch)
