Project Description:
We are at the start of our creative journey and are looking for somebody to come up with some layered photoshop/illustrator vector designs of quirky, loveable robots.

We are a website who specialises in monitoring servers. We're the ones that will let you know if something has gone wrong with your servers and provide you with the much needed information to ensure you are able to bring your server(s) back up. We monitor from all around the world 24/7.

We are looking to bring some personality through to the site by having some robot charactures drawn, in as my different poses as possible.

For each unique feature we have we are looking for a different robot, with different personality and physical characteristics (could be male or female)
1. Server Monitoring. (Maybe sitting in front of an operations centre like NASA with multiple arms doing different things, looking over his shoulder and winking. His catch phrase is 'I watch the internet')
2. Notifications. The robot responsible for sending notifications when a server/service is malfunctioning.
3. Statistics. The uber nerdy bot who loves numbers and data. The robot responsible for aggregating data and generating pretty graphs.
4. The homepage, iconic loveable character who is the face of our site. The robot that features on the front page and the one that can guide you through the site.


When coming up with the charactures imagine the being turned into plushy toys that you could buy online!

We are NOT looking for this kind of design. They look cheap:

The main thing to keep in mind is personality, we want people to fall in love with these robots

Further to point #4. The homepage robot should have something like a james bond style hairdo and a smoking jacket - he's a suave charismatic robot that makes you fall in love with him (as a result, fall in love with us).

Skills required:
