I must say, all of the designers were so great! I am so pleased, thank you so very very much!! :-)
As with previous projects, Roni was excellent to work with - a great blend of amazing illustration skills, a good eye, and a proactive suggestion when needed.

Got lots of designs and a very good winner. What we could have done better was to be even more specific in the beginning about what we wanted.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Promanent develops software and runs a webstore for nautical publications like books and navigational charts. Our audience and clients are either yachtsmen and women and profesional sailors.
You can see our websites (in Dutch) at: Vaarwinkel.nl and Promanent.com
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We need a cartoon like character of a friendly aligator whose name will be Navigator. This character will be used on our nautical website to guide clients through the selection of the products they need. Navigator will also be used in documentation, brochures and in our navigation software and help files.
So please take in to account that on a website or in a app the images will be much smaller as in print. Navigator must look great in digital work and in print.
We suggest you show Navigator in several possible positions. For example: Showing directions. Steering a boat. Navigating the stars. Holding a book. Looking angry. Delivering a parcel. Throwing a lifeline. On a surfboard. etc.. So nautical things but with a double meaning. So throwing a lifeline can be used for clients whom need our assistance.
The winner will be asked to come up with Navigator in 10 + 1 different settings.
1. Hi, I am Navigator (to introduce Navigator to our customers)
2. Navigator carrying a parcel (we are a webshop that sell nautical books, charts etc.)
3. Navigator throwing a line (Throw us a line)
4. Navigator with a lifebuoy or throwing a life-line/rescue line (ask us for help)
5. Navigator angry or frustrated (to be shown on error page of site)
6. Navigator sailing or surfing
7. Navigator steering (a boat)
8. Navigator holding an empty sign (so we can fill the sign with text)
9. Navigator navigating (for example looking at the stars)
10. Navigator on the look out (for example with binoculars)
+ an extra setting of your own choice
And we also want to make a price agreement for future new drawings of Navigator in different settings when the need for this comes up.
