Medical & Pharmaceutical
We are a pharmacy with two stores in Tübingen, Germany. For us a pharmacy isn't just a place where people pick up medicine. It's a place where you can find knowledge, meet people, talk, where you get help and in many cases hope. A pharmacy is so many things and we want to show that. We want to be different. We started this journey by picking an uncommon name "pharmaphant". Please check out our website: www.pharmaphant-apotheke.de and our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pharmaphant/ for more information and impressions.
What's your vision?
WE NEED AN APOTHECARY ELEPHANT, A PHARMAPHANT. Since our customers age ranges from 0 to 100 years, from slightly ill to deadly serious ill, the main challenge is to create a figure that is not to childish but not to serious either! Just the right amount of goofy and seriousness to cheer up ill children but at the same time not misplaced to give a patient who has only a few weeks left to life a bit of hope and happiness! The archetype of an apothecary is male, wearing a coat. We would prefer male because it rather meets the expectations of our customers. He probably should be older. If possible, create a figure you would like to talk to about your problems and seems able to solve them. He needs to be trustworthy. May be a bit like Santa Clause as apothecary elephant. He should look interesting for children and adults equally. We picture him like this. But less frightening more friendly. In general the body should be elephant, not in detail but in general, overweight, the hand and feet should still look like elephant with a human touch, so that he can hold objects, dressed with only a coat, maybe shirt and tie but not more and the head should be humanized. You should recognize friendly, welcoming and intelligent characteristics. https://99designs.de/profiles/cadzart/designs/635603?from=%2Fdiscover%3Fpage%3D1%26tags%3Delephant%2Celephant-logo But any style is welcome. Sometimes you only know what you want, when you see it. The design shouldn't look misplaced when put next to our logo (attached file). Put our Logo (only the read elephant head with bowl and snake) on his coat, right side out of his position at breast hight. We would like to see him with and without tusks. We prefer him with tusks but if it affects the trustworthiness to much draw him without. We want to use the figure for different purposes. As highly recognisable mascot for advertising but also to explain procedures. For example, how to order via our website/webshop and what happens after you hit the order button. As mascot, we need him in a friendly, welcoming position.
Please give your best. We would need you and him for follow up work. Thank you and good luck. Dr. Sebastian Schmidt and his Team

Hossein is an excellent artist. He really nailed the look of our character based logo, which isn't easy. He accommodated tweaks and changes quickly too. Looking forward to working with him on future projects.
