How IMH started their logo design journey

Summary

Mascot logo needed for new website containing helpful articles, information and how-to’s.

Company name

Hosting Help Guy/Girl

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

We are in need
of a cartoon style mascot for a technical help website that we will soon be
launching. The mascot will drive the persona of the site and serve as the focus
of our branding efforts.

The mascot will
need to be a vector cartoon style and we need both a male and female version.
Both characters should be in the 25-30 age range, provide a smiling, friendly
feel and both should be drawn in similar fashions so that they are recognizable
as similar.

The male
character should have a techy/geeky look and the female character should have a
geeky/cute look. The male version should be accompanied with the text “Hosting
Help Guy” while the female version should be accompanied with the text “Hosting
Help Guy Girl” with the “Guy” portion crossed out and “Girl” appearing
to have been handwritten in lipstick.

Both versions
of the characters (or portion of) will need to be able to be clear and
recognizable when scaled down to 125x125, 50x50 and 16x16 for use as avatars
and favicon.ico. Just the head may be used in the scaled down versions for
clarity’s sake.

The style that
we are looking for is something very similar to the following existing artwork:

The male character should be much younger,
as described above, and a bit more “cool”. The female character should not have
eyeglasses and should be cute but preserve the computer geek persona and should
convey a sense of “girl power”. Varied use of clothing to achieve the desired
effects is ok.

To
help segment the contest the competition will be presented in stages as
detailed below.

Awards:

1st Place - $700 & Free Year of our Pro Hosting Plan (Worth $227)
