This is a start up podcast network (online radio ) and we are looking for our "mascot" of sorts for the branding of our website. We will produce online radio in the form of podcast distribution. The plan is to produce varying podcast's of many subjects such as popular tv shows,tech,nutrition and health,and many other topics.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Fatbot.tv is the name of our upcoming website so we are looking for a character or illustration ( mascot) that is a fat robot. We are looking for a more POLISHED look and something less like a cartoonish type look if that makes sense. We are relatively young and very much into electronic music and would love for the robot to be fat albeit fun as well. We are surrounded a lot by audio gear so a fat robot with a mic either in hand or a mic in a boom would not be bad. For reference we use the Heil PR-40 mic with a Heil Sound PL2T overhead boom mount. The color scheme of the robot may determine our main webpages look. It can be very colorful or use the black and white "girl in the red dress" Spielberg look used by many photographers.The only real requirement is that the robot is fat. Please feel free to be as openly creative as you like. Keep in mind if this could also translate to a geek who would wear that robot on a shirt that says FATBOT.TV
We would like the designers to know that we will be keeping tabs on the several designs we like and that this could lead to further logo and character designs in the future. We believe in paying talented people as we consider ourselves to be artists in a sense as well.
