We are looking for character designers that are comfortable working in vector style for a project that will be animated in After Effects (so ideally Illustrator and Photoshop).
Attached are some references of the look & feel we have in mind for the characters. These are characters designed in flat 2D vector style with some depth and shading.
We have a super tight deadline and would need you to start urgently. Please send examples of your work in this style.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
The objective of this design contest is to design a number of characters, for inspiration but not limited to:
- An Indian lady sitting on a couch in a living room, talking to Amazon Alexa
- A black man in a headset in a call centre
- A Mediterranean woman with a clipboard wearing a white shirt
The prize money is an indication of 2-3 days of work with finished characters and potentially animating them as per future brief with moneys paid by an agreed day rate.
Please find the attached style references. If you are able to animate the character you designed, we would like you to work on the animation as well for a few days and we should agree on your day rate for the job.
