What do you do?

Create and manufacture innovative products for nature protection, "green" agriculture and responsible farming practices

How many pages of illustration do you need?

Multiple characters integrated in background (but usable without), with a consistent page layout

What do you need illustrated?

To highlight the features of a new electronic measurement product for agricultural use, we need a design of several original characters (NOT stock pictures) and backgrounds, that will be integrated into dynamic and modern flyers and websites. The selected designer would also have to provide a flyer/Web layout integrating the characters with the text in a creative, consistent and visually powerful way that quickly makes the point.
====================================================================================
10 characters to create. Their look is multi-cultural, concentrated, busy, serious, worker
but... with an original look! Each character may be inspired by electronic components, her body may symbolises a function on the electronic board, with the possibility to add a head, arms, legs, etc... on the body. BE CREATIVE!!

1) Mr Power - powerful guy, full of energy!
We can try a look like "Superman" or a Sumotori
body may be inspired by a battery, with pectoral looking like a solar panel surface

2) Mrs Antenna - thin, aerial-
Body may be inspired by an antenna shape
we can try a style like "Columbia pictures" allegory

3) Mrs Simcard
Body inspired by a cell phone SIM card
She stands is in front of a double counter:
One side of counter with a sign: "Prepaid / low cost ", the other side: "Subscribe / full price"
Mrs Simcard is clearly standing in from of the sign "Prepaid / low cost" (this is one of the competitive advantages)

4) Mr SDcard is archivist - very tidy
Body may be inspired by a micro-SD card. He stores bytes in good order on shelves.

5) Mr Sensor is an agronomist
Body may be inspired by a sensor (see picture in attachments). He is drilling a hole in the soil


6) Mrs LCD TV newsreader look
She announces the information on the screen display (there is an LCD screen on the board)

7) Mrs Clock -her function is to set the frequencies and the appointments
May be inspired by a quartz component, with a secretary look

8) Mr Controlman is an hydraulic engineer
Body may be inspired by a solenoid. He opens and closes solenoid valves for watering control.

9) The coach
This team is coached by a "microprocessor" with many arms, sending information to the user

10) The user (our customer) is happy to get a report graph on his smart phone.
========================================================
So in summary, we will need:
- a set of 10 characters
- a background where the characters can easily be integrated
- a print page layout (choice of colors, structure and fonts) that goes well with the characters
- a Web page layout that is consistent with the print

For the submission, please concentrate on the characters only. You will provide the remaining components if you are the winner.
