Distinctive Stick Person Design that is Simple, Conveys Emotion through Face and Hands. Create 3 stick people now as basic design for many more to be created.

Company name

567 Web Marketing Inc.

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

We are using Stick People and Stick Objects to help us convey ideas to visitors of our new website. The Stick People created by the winner of this contest will represent the basic design for all Stick People to be developed in future for our website.

Simplicity is very important. The Stick People must be able to express emotions (like frustration, pain, anger, happiness) through their face and hands and will often be drawn in movement (running, jumping). Contest submissions will be evaluated on 4 criteria: first priority is the degree to which the stick People convey the desired emotion. Second is the simplicity of the design (no fancy graphics please) and Third is the speed with which the resulting .gif could be downloaded (faster than the speed of light please). Fourth is the distinctiveness of the StickPeople (if you can make a stick person distinctive, that is.)

We need vector graphics in Adobe Illustrator and .png format which we will convert to gifs. We are expecting fairly 'flat' stick people in black color. If they look like simple line drawings that is fine (and it satisfies the need for small files for speedy download).

We don't need the whole stick person, where only the face and hands convey the desired emotion.

This is not a graphic art contest. We aren't interested in great art. We need these stick people to look casual, like someone just zipped them off on a piece of scrap paper - but we need them to accurately convey emotion.

'Nuff said.
