Project description

Hello lovely Designers,

we would love so see some suggestions for a new brand character. There are nice information and references for you so that you can complete this job at perfection!

We are an e-commerce agency from Germany and plan to create an online shop which sells hedges (plants).

We want to build a brand character which is an expert in gardening, more accurate in growing and cultivating hedges.

Our brand character is a guide which supports our customers during the whole customer journey (information, buying, planting, cultivating).

Fortunately we already have online-shops with similar brandings and characters. So that you can easily take a look at them and know directly what style we want the new character to have (cartoon-like):

Example: Rollrasen Rudi

- grows turf and sells it online at www.rollrasen-rudi.de
- take a look at the character attached

Example: Holz Harry

- produces wood briquettes and sells them online at www.holzharry.de
- take a look at the character attached

NOW WE NEED: Hecken Helge

What do we expect of Helge?

- he loves his job (growing and cultivating hedges, gardening)
- he's 100% likable (people must love him :-) !)
- he has similar style and especially eyes to Rudi or Harry (see attachment)
- he's tall and a little lanky/gawky (with a hint of a tummy), but professional
- he's at the age of 50 - 60
- he holds a manual hedge clipper
- please look at Rudi and Harry to get a feeling of his appearance

GOOD TO KNOW: There's more to do!

For the contest we need only one suggestion for "Hecken Helge". But after finding the final character we need it in many poses like holding garden tools, cutting hedges and so on. Moreover, we also need Harry and Rudi in more poses. So there are many follow-up orders for you. :-)

We look forward to expanding our character family and getting your suggestions!
