What's your vision?
I would like a really cool looking "Cloud Man" that we have called "Mr. Smith". His job is to know all about Cloudsmith and its services and be helpful to the user. He should have a smiling face, arms and hands that can do a thumbs up and point. He should be able to support wearing a tie (for use when he is representing a business persona) and maybe glasses (for nerdier usage), or shades or even a builder hat or university cap. He should be bald (no "hair"). Variations required: - Natural (no added artefacts) - pointing and thumbs up variants. - With Tie - With Glasses - With University Cap Not sure about legs... or if he should just "pop out" of a background (as seen in the example attached image). We would like to see some expression variations too e.g. Happy, pondering etc. Basically we’d like the attached image “smith.png” “converted” into something we can use on a website. There is a difficult balance on making a cloud-man look good - which is why we are on 99 designs! Mr Smith should be designed in a very simple, solid style, without 3D-effects or anything like that (I think). If you feel that "Mr Smith" could be better suited with something beyond my brief please try it. It should be attracting a wide audience, so please take care that it does not mainly appeal to kids. It has to look better than clipart. Main Color: White / Grey where appropriate Application: Mascot for website mainly. Also for stickers, postcards etc.
We like what readme.io have done - good example of mascot: https://dash.readme.io/signup Cloudsmith Logo and color palette here: https://corp.cloudsmith.io/branding/

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their character or mascot.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
acarson collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
