How Alexander.Thiel started their button or icon journey

Overview

We have launched a social media campaign to help in the global fight against Malaria. We have both been involved with the fight aganist Malaria on the ground and have seen the devastation of this disease. Every 30 seconds a child in Africa dies of Malaria; bringing the death toll of Malaria to almost a million children a year. Help us change that!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

social media users (facebook) in a demographic of 16-25

Requirements

We are looking for a set of characters for an online game we currently have under development. They will all be child-like, mostly African, and should all be happy, cute and positively inspiring personas. These characters will be collected through the game and therefore need to be collectible in the sense that they share an overarching style but differ in distinct features.

In a first instance, we will need 20 unique characters and the winner of the contest should have the capacity to finish them in a short timeframe. FOR THIS CONTEST, we are looking for a set of 5 little characters. (The other 15 will be separately compensated).

For now, to win this competition, we want to see the following 5 characters:

1) Mosamba (African boy)
2) Tanesha (African girl)
3) Amadi (African girl)
4) Baback Orama (An African-child version of Barack Obama, maybe behind a little podium, giving a speech)
5) Tangerina Jolly (An African child version of Angelina Jolie, maybe with huge sunglasses, long hair, exquisite clothing)

A size around 70px(w) x 120(h) is totally sufficient

We recommend you start with one character so we can tell you whether it goes in the right direction. We’re happy to give detailed and immediate feedback and really want to make this a highly interactive process.

We are looking forward to your submissions. Thank you all a lot in advance!
