I am one of the co-founders and chief creative officer for Bleeksters, which is a play on Geeksters. I'm designing the web site, twitter, facebook, etc. The site is everbody but targeted at "black geeks".
Black geeks have swag, style, the latest clothes, japanese watches, geeky glasses, macs and are about information, technology, traveling and money.
The company is a combination of Mashable, TechCrunch, Engadget, Obsessable and Black Web 2.0. Our blog covers gadgets/technology, travel, fashion, current events, sneakers, and finance. We are basically a web magazine. We are cutting edge, technology driven.
Male & Female ages 14-34. Black, White, Asian. Middle to Upper Class. College Educated. Web & tech savvy. Fashionable, into music, cars, nightclubs, clothes.
Mostly 80's & 90's babies. Most are single or just starting their family and live in an urban environment, NYC, LA, MIA, ATL, DC, SF, BOS. They are well traveled. Executive & Entrepreneurial types. Trend setters.
I am looking for a vector cartoon character, text logo and thumbnail that combines the letter b and the character. All three should be high-res. Text logo color should match the color of the one on the site and include the pronunciation spelling as on the site.
The cartoon character should look web 2.0-ish or anime style drawing. A head is cool, but full body is better. Please include chunky headphones on the character, either hanging around neck or on top of head. Geeky glasses must also be included.
We are looking for a New Boyz, Kanye West, Drake, L.A. geeky cartoon head and or full body character. Must look cool, not white, not black, must be subtle and appeal to whites and mos definitely african americans.
The character design is in line with what we want. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CHs4x2uqcQ
The character should have fresh kicks on(air force one mids, geek glasses, a japanese looking backpack and watch, iphone looking phone, head phones, macbook pro, chain, white t-shirt.
When someone looks at the character they said be able to say...that character looks like they have the best gadgets in the world in that backpack. The character looks like they are going somewhere, doing something big. Looks like someone who you need to be around all the time.
