We are creating a mobile app that helps consumers find products and businesses by providing interactive rewards.
We seek a character (could be an animal or more abstract) that is strikingly simple yet conveys a fun sentiment. Ideally we want cute, but also a clever personality that will appeal to both sexes.
**UPDATED** One concept we like is a 3D colored sphere (a dot/point) with some personality... or even a few, with different personalities. ***
Ideally, we would like the character logo to compliment the 3 colors found on our website here: http://checkpoints.com/
Some design inspirations (does not have to be a monkey or bird):
This logo should appeal to moms (who are the primary shoppers in most families), yet not be overly feminine as to alienate male geeks (who tend to be the early adopters of technology).
Feel free to be creative.
Please do keep it simple so that we shrink the logo down to a small portion of an iPhone screen and still be identifiable.
