What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We need 8-bit avatars, similar to http://eightbit.me, but 1.5-2x higher resolution and 60% shorter. All designs must be vector based.
Players will be able to customize their avatar, so we need many different styles for male and female avatars. Ideally we'll have three(3) different styles/colors for skin tones, haircut, shirt, pants, dress, shoes -- like most of the options you have when creating an avatar at eightbit.me. All haircuts, shirts, pants etc. should be made to be easily interchangeable with any skin tone of the same sex.
We will want to work with the winner to make more versions of the designs.
Should be globally appealing style with style options appealing to younger and older crowds.
Designs should be at a 45 degree angle so they work well in a room type environment.
