We want to redesign our dinosaur Mascot "Dino."
Personality of "Dino":
Dino is a friendly guy in his early 20's who may have come from a different time and place and isn't the coolest guy on the block, but is staying up to date and has learned to hang with just about any crowd, because he knows the lingo.
We would like Dino to have a distinctive, iconic shape, which we can use at different resolutions and form factors, such as the web page, app icon, splash screen, etc. It would be helpful to see different expressions, such as "Thumbs up", "What???", "Smirk". We've never had any clothes or accessories on Dino before, but have been thinking of giving him a pair of sunglasses.
Our app's primary colors are yellow and red, and our previous design was yellow with red spikes. We are open to suggestions on the colors, his outfit (if any) and accessories can be of other colors of course.
Simple, bold, not too many lines. Something in line with mascots for college targeted apps, such as Yik Yak.
