We would like a character created for our mascot "Patrick". Patrick is a short but likable, hard working, average Joe, kinda guy. He is in his early thirties and gets his payslip sent to him every month from paypatrick.com.
Attached is a character design we really like very much, the colour, the font and the style in which the character is drawn.
I think the design qualities that i like from the attachement is that its a) simple, b) clean/crisp, c) minimalistic, d) mono tone. I also like the font, but dont mind if there is a different font that works better.
The problem with this specific character is that its too young. We were told we cannot ask the designer for different variations, so we are doing a contest instead.
Our typical customer will be startup founders who employes 1 -10 staff members.
