QuantumMaid is the name of our technology. We are looking for an illustrated cartoon style mascot for business purposes -- clean lines and bold colors. Our target audience includes all software developers around the world.
What's your vision?
For the QuantumMaid mascot we'd like to use a Shieldmaiden -- a female shield bearing warrior from Viking history. We need to be able to reuse the mascot for each of our frameworks. We currently have four products sharing this mascot. Here's a quick description of each, which need not be reflected in the design: - HttpMaid: A tool for build web servers and web applications - MapMaid: A protocol tool that translates from one language to another - MessageMaid: A development tool that sends notices and events - DocuMaid: A documentation writing tool It'll be sufficient if we write the technology name below the mascot when we use it. Ideally, some aspect of the mascot can be changed for each of the technologies. This could be as simple as a hair style, or the shield imagery. The Shieldmaiden itself should be a respectful heroic icon, and nothing like a sexualized Lara Croft style video game character. The theme should reflect the old Viking sagas, but also mix in a futuristic technology aspect. It is important that the logo is accepted by male, female and diverse developers. The mascot should be generally square for use in product and catalog imagery. The mascot will be used for various sizes graphics, down to around 300x300 and should be clear at that resolution. (We still want the vector graphic source files, not the rendered output.)
The Mascot must fit on the GitHub Website (attached a ScreenShot) and on our Website which will be mostly in darker colours like dark grey.
