Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We make games online for all ages where you play in real life over the internet. Controlling real cars, real robots, real drones, etc. from anywhere in the world.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We want a mascot for our brand. We want a simple character that is a mix of a ninja but also a robot (maybe a robot who is dressed as a ninja?). We want it to be versatile and easy to be used small and large while still being viewable and understandable.
Here are some examples of style we want. We want the lighting on the mascot to be the same as the current one we have (ninja holding two fingers, attached) - so pink and blue (synth/retrowave) lighting on the character. Our whole brand is this synthwave/retro style so we want something we can use that matches that.
Attached we have our current ninja that we like, but we want him more like a robot. We have attached a retrowave design of optimus prime's head who has kind of a ninja face (minus the stuff on the top of his head) where maybe you can take inspiration or maybe go in another direction entirely. After that, we have our Youtube banner which shows you the style we kinda want to match - we will use the character as the profile picture of the channel. Also attached are some mascots we really like from other places - to show the simplistic but approachable style/idea we are going for.
The person's design we pick, we will also like to go further with them and create more designs with different poses of the same character for different parts of our website. So this is not just a one time gig!
