marinus got their new character or mascot by running a design contest:
Product-photographer Character-cartoon, real person look a like. We call him: “Rini”
Check out marinus's Character or mascot contest…
** Who is Uw-Productfotograaf.nl Literally translated “Your product photographer”, we are specialised in product photography for ecommerce purposes. **For who? We focus on both big ecommerce companies that need large amounts of pictures taken, we also help the small Internet retailer who is just starting out with their first online shop. We make pack shots of all types of products; clothing, jewellery, shoes, bags etcetera. ** Why a mascot? We wish to start a blog for people seeking how to do product photography themselves. Rini will be our mascot, explaining how everything works. Rini will also be used in various social media, saying happy Valentines Day and happy new-year emails etc.
What's your vision?
We want to find the designer who can crate a great looking Rini and work from there towards "multiple rini's". We ask you Designers to create 1 Rini in 5 totally different settings/moods (specified in the "other" section below). This contest will be followed by a 1on1 for the remaining Rini’s. Rini’s look: He needs to resemble a real life person (see photo’s attached). Color: Either have the same colors as the website (see image attached)… Or something completely different. Graphics Style: Funny, Simple, Bold, icon like, not to many lines Rini’s personality: Rini is hip, playful, professional. He appeals to a wide range of people. The website will be very professional and clean. Rini will be used to add a little “playfull touch”, the fun factor, he will be explaining how Product Photography works. We need Rini with multiple and specific facial expressions, with a couple of gadgets, and wearing some different outfits.
Facial expressions. - In deep thought (rubbing chin?) - Looking totally clueless (big eyes, sweatdrop?) - Highy concentrated (frown, tongue out of mouth?) - Tip, having a good idea/suggestion (finger in the air, light bulb above head?) - Well done! (Big thumbs up) - Mega-Succes. (Jumping in the air) - Happyness, (doing a victory dance) - Angry/Frustrated (pulling hair out of head) - Curious, Peeking around the corner (you can see 2 hands and the top of the face, like someone looking from behind an open door) With Props: - Totally in love, holding a heart shaped gift. (for valantines day, hearts and puppy eyes) - Angry Frustrated (destroying camera, jumping on top of it) - Making a Phonecall (with an iphone 6, almost apple look alike logo) - Holding a big diamond in his hand. - Holding a piece of clothing (on a hanger, ready to be photographed) - Holding a beer, Cheers (almost Heineken beer logo) Wearing a costume: - Professorlook (wearing scolar hat, half glasses, pointing stick, looking like IQ200+) - Like superhero (Muscle man, cape + mask + UPF on his chest) - Wearing a tuxedo, holding a glas of champaign - Wearing Halloween costume (maybe wear a pumpkin?) - Wearing an orange suit & crown (please google: “queensday” for inspiration ) (!)
