Real Estate & Mortgage
We have a website that helps people estimate the value of their real estate properties. The user answers several questions about the property location, type, size, etc.. and then the Genie responds with the estimated value. Our service is still in experimental mode, so its not super accurate. We calculate the value by using a rich set of historic property prices data.-
What's your vision?
We want to design a mascot for our service, the mascot is a genie who will be used all over the website, in our ads, app, when users start filling out the property valuation questionnaire, while we are loading the results, after the results are shown, and after the user gives feedback. We need to get several drawings for the genie in several modes and actions so we can show each in a different occasion. (Genie Modes and Actions notes in Other section) The genie is currently 13 years old, so he is young and foolish, but sometimes he is smart and accurate. We want him to be young because our service is still in beta mode, and sometimes its very accurate and other times its completely off. We think this will help people forgive the genie for his mistakes. As our service gets better we will grow the age of the genie and make him look more professional and wise. So, to help us envision his future and to help us also write a story about his childhood we will need a few shots at different ages. (Genie History/Future in Other section) IMPORTANT NOTE: Please start by submitting your main design of the character and wait to see if I will eliminate it or keep it, I really don't want you to start working on all the Modes/Actions/History right away. Color: The genie color must be blue like our attached logo, and it would be great if part of the character curves is inspired by the logo to help maintain our brand with genie. You can use the attached orange color for contrast in clothing for example, etc.. These are the three colors we use in all our brand material: Blue color: 0077b9 Orange color: ec7623 Gray color: 9b9b9b Graphics Style: Funny, Simple, Bold, icon like, not to many lines Final notes: - Clothing is completely up to you. - Keep the character simple, not super detailed. - The genie is super smart, funny, hip, and a bit foolish and reckless since he is just 13 years old. - We don't want him to look like its a copy of the famous Aladin Genie, we want a unique genie. We attached a sample unique genie that is completely different from Aladin Genie just to help you understand. - We attached a sample mascot drawing that shows how we expect the deliverable too look like. This is not our property, we are just using it as a sample. The expected deliverable is the main genie character + the 3 following derivatives: 1- Genie Modes (6) 2- Genie Actions (6) 3- Genie History / Future (4) P.S. We will most likely continue with whoever ends up winning the project for a long time, we plan to grow the age of the genie by 10 years every 6 months, so we will most likely need to revisit the illustration in the future, and we might ask for more designs also sooner than that. Of course all of this will be under a different agreement and for fees that we both agree on. If you have questions, let me know.
Genie Modes: I want face and body expressions to be different, not just the facial expressions. I wrote some ideas next to each mode, but you don't have to stick to them, just do what you feel conveys the right Genie mode) 1. Thinking (rubbing chin, facial expressions) 2. Confident (Smile, wink, thumbs up) 3. In doubt (scratching head, eye brows) 4. Confused / Shocked (Wide eyes, body/hand language) 5. Super Happy / Excited (Smile, Eyes, Jumping, Hands) 6. Sorry (Body language, eyes, face) Genie Actions: 1. Looking deeply into a map with piles of maps next to him or behind him 2. Making a phone call with a smart phone 3. Browsing the internet on a smart phone 4. Angry and stepping on a broken smart phone 5. Peeking around our attached logo with a smile 6. Being Cool wearing Sun Glasses and an iPod ear piece Genie History / Future 1. When he was a baby next to his father and mother (maybe mother carrying him and father leaning in, or him playing with toys wearing a diaper and his parents looking at him) 2. When he was 6 years old studying genie books 3. How he will look like when he is 30 years old, mature, professional, confident, and smart 4. How he will look when he is 70 years old, wise, white hair, etc..
