A very talented designer. I am so pleased with the final designs, exactly what I was after. I would definitely recommend Crotopus and will use again.
How mikedoonan started their other graphic design journey
Husband and wife team developing an ipad app. This is an educational app for young children.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Primary users are young children ages 2-10 and the adult using the app with them. They will be looking for a character that is entertaining and cheerful.
The character is to be a mouse.
Key characteristics that we are looking for to the mouse:
- Simplicity is important, because ultimately we will be animating.
- Friendly face
- Looks entertaining and nice
- Standing upright.
- Somewhat colorful
- 2 dimensional
- The best examples from a complexity standpoint are Felix the Cat (but more colorful) or Brian from the Family Guy
- There will be sound associated, but not necessarily with these designs.
- Character should be approx 8cm in height.
Looking for three poses:
1. A waiting posture. Kind of an "I am waiting to go have some fun" look.
2. A "ta-da" stance. Like he has just performed some sort of trick and is very proud of himself. Should be smiling.
3. Watering a plant- A more mellow mouse here, just going about his business.
I realize these requirements are a bit vague, so I will rate submissions as they come in to give you a better idea of what appeals to me.
Contest winner will provide layered RGB file in Photoshop PSD or Fireworks PNG format and JPEG.
