I'd like to have a cartoon character that represents the successful web entrepreneur. He would be about 28, being quite handsome and smiling, looking confident and successful but not arrogant, like a guy who might be willing to help as well (remember, I want to build up a community)
I'd like to avoid the cliche about the ultra white smile and the notes flying all around him so please keep it subtle.. ..remember our community is growing big because we are delivering real value to our members, and no "get rich quick schemes".
But be sure we want something colorful and modern that inspires confidence and success to our members in building up their online business.
The website´s background color is currently dark grey but I am gonna switch to a light color (like white or close to white) so keep this in mind for the logo.
By the way, we use more and more the acronym WED to talk about our website so you might want to use this instead of "Web Entrepreneur Debutant" which I have to admit is a bit long.. ;)
Thanks for your propositions, feel free to ask any question about the project as we are really committed to getting a great logo in 7 days, we will reply fast ;)

My first idea was to make a character thats looks like me, I had a designer doing a design for me but I don't like it (it's not very nice), if you feel like you can do better then go ahead ! We really want to get a logo very soon for our website.
I added the following images: the logo the designer did that (vaguely) looks like me. I'm not sure if the sunglasses are a good idea.
I added a photo of me with sunglasses and one without, if you can make a character that looks a bit like that would be awesome !
