Both characters should be in the 25-30 age range, provide a smiling, friendly
feel and both should be drawn in similar fashions so that they are recognizable
character should have a techy/geeky look and the female character should have a
geeky/cute look. The male version should be accompanied with the text “Hosting
Help Guy” while the female version should be accompanied with the text “Hosting
Help Guy Girl” with the “Guy” portion crossed out and “Girl” appearing
