Robert.ghilduta got their new character or mascot by running a design contest:
Mascot logo for open source Access Point project

We sell handheld hardware radio equipment to RF enthusiasts.
What's your vision?
Currently need a mascot logo design for an open source project. The mascot logo will be the project's main visual identifier on places like Github and Twitter. The open source project is a WiFi access point. The hardware that generates the access point is a software defined radio known as the bladeRF. Both of these should be integrated into the design as one entity. The other entity should be some kind of animal or creature that's holding it or using it; this is just a suggestion, happy to see other concepts. The bladeRF device (micro_sq.png) is known as a software defined radio, and it connects to a computer via USB. It receives and transmits RF signals such as WiFi, GPS, LTE, GSM, Bluetooth. You can find out more about the product on our page: https://nuand.com/ to get a better idea. Please feel free to request additional information or resources for this project. As inspiration for what the mascot should look like, take a look at Docker's mascot (Moby), and GitHub's mascot (Octacat). The mascot/logo should be fun and memorable, but shouldn't be too complicated. The mascot can either be the access point, or the mascot can be some kind of animal or creature that interacts with the bladeRF based WiFi access point. A few key points to (optionally) consider: show the device turning RF waves into digital signals (see below) make it apparent that the bladeRF software defined radio is generating WiFi (show WiFi Access Point radio signals) One potential idea: Some kind of animal (fox, see note below about animals and creatures) holding a product (see micro_sq.png) in its hands emanating a WiFi access point. (Maybe show digital signals in the form of 1s and 0s going in to the USB side of the product, and WiFi/RF coming out of the antenna side). The antenna side is the right side, which is where the 4 circular RF connectors are. To keep things small, the bladeRF wouldn't need too much detail besides: the USB connector, 4 RF connectors, rectangular metal shield, and the square chip in the middle of the board. More focus should be placed on the mascot. Another potential idea: Some kind of hybrid half animal/creature and half WiFi Access point. The Access Point hybrid could be shown smiling. It could potentially be surrounded by a few other WiFi devices (like a phone, tablets) sending WiFi signals its way. All designs should strongly clue the viewer in to this having something to do with WiFi Access Points. The mascot should be thought of as (and should look like) the embodiment of a WiFi Access Point. The animals or creatures that evoke "communication" and "distant communication" would be interesting, as a bird like a dove can carry messages far. Birds and foxes are just ideas, not limitations.

Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Character or mascot starts at $349.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their character or mascot.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Robert.ghilduta collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected 2 winners!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
