Xyicon Design Contest Showcases Smart Icons for Any "Thing" in Any "Space" With New SpaceRunner Web Application

NAPA, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 25, 2015) - Xyicon, a provider of innovative software solutions, is hosting the first Xyicon Design Contest -- challenging entrants to create smart "Xyicons" to represent a person, place or any other "Thing" for any "Space" in Xyicon's new SpaceRunner application.

Xyicons are visual clues to items a person or a business wants to keep track of. Xyicons can represent equipment, objects or furniture that are in the office, home, outdoor space or other areas. These icons can include appliances, electronic equipment or even trees and shrubs. SpaceRunner is a new web-based visual asset planning and management that serves as a "Visual Spreadsheet" for the many different "Things" associated with any floor plan, location map or building image.

Entrants who add to the current library of Xyicons with their own unique creations can win one of three $200 Amazon Gift Cards.  Entry ideas include new Xyicon visualizations for The Fourth of July, AED, Barbecue, Playground Equipment, Patio Furniture, Fire Pit, Plotter, File Cabinet, Bluetooth Speaker, DVD Player or any other "Thing" in any building, facility commons area or other "Space." For more sample Xyicons, check out Xyicon's Facebook photo album here. For Xyicon Design Contest specs and guidelines, go to

The top 10 Xyicon designs will be announced on July 6, 2015.
