I need a custom illustration produced for our website. The winning designer will then be asked to potentially continue for up to 25 additional illustrations.
For this audition illustration, we would like to have the following illustrated.
An industrial engineer is standing on a hill overlooking a land full of factories. Each factory has data moving from it back to the engineer/data scientist (does not need to wear a hardhat or vest). In his hands, the engineer holds a tablet that he is using to analyze all of the data from the factories. He smiles with confidence, he has the power to control the entire enterprise and he knows the right moves to make.
The graphic will need to sit on a white background and should not have a hard border. The company color palette and website design features yellows, greys, and blues. It is important that the engineer's face have detail (no blank faces please!). Avoid extreme differences in body and head proportion.
We are looking for custom art and do not want the standard flat vector illustration that appears on so many websites. General style is open. As a company we are disputers to a stale industry. We have fun and don't take ourselves too seriously. However, we sell our software to industrial engineers, so it is important that the illustration not feel "childish" or cross over into what you would expect to find in a children's book.
