Design Original Cartoon Character

Contest Brief

We are a Hong Kong based premium, dairy-free ice cream company called Happy Cow ([login to view URL]). We are running a contest to create an original cartoon character from the cow in our logo or a character made from ice cream (example: character made from M&Ms, Gudatama made from an egg). For the character it is important that it is gender neutral, positive, fun, carefree and playful. As we market to a multi-lingual market, no words can be used, but the actions/situation of the character should have universal appeal. Would like to show the character active in different activities (example: celebrating Halloween, running a race, reading to kids). The character will be used in our marketing materials and to create a digital sticker series on social media. The project will have two parts: (1) create 3 static and 1 short animation of the character. Whomever wins this contest, will be invited to work with us on an ongoing basis to create a larger static and animated series of the character.

    HI, I've used the original cow in logo and brought it to life in the animation, https://www.dropbox.com/s/e3lykqi6wkkwk0b/happy%20cow%20%28Converted%29.mov?dl=0
    however as it is all brown, it doesn't look great in statics. See entry 61

    Hi everyone. Please only submit original cow characters - copies of already created characters will be rejected and reported to Freelancer. This is not an exercise to create a new logo, we are looking to bring the cow character in our logo to life in the form of a cartoon. Many thanks for your participation.

      Great, please focus on a cartoon which has relation to the cow in our logo (if you decide to focus on the cow). Can't wait to see your creative work!

    Thanks for your entries - if you are going to do the cow character, please stick to creating a cow like our logo (100% brown, with a simple structure) - as the two need to be seamless and connected. None of the entries to date show any connection back to our logo. Many thanks.
