Just posted a picture of a possible ‘spokesbeing’ (spokescreature?) for Wikiup. I’d appreciate feedback.

The Spokesbeing (as a business card)

Do you like the colors? The fonts? The whole concept? Got a name for our creature? I’d love to hear your thoughts.


  1. Definitely like the font not sure about the mascot though……something doesn’t seem right but i can’t quite put my finger on it. Not very helpful i know sorry!

  2. I think it’s the spokeperson’s saggy moobs that disturb me most! :-o

  3. i like the character – what struck me immediately is that it isn’t very well defined. like the artist wasn’t finished with it. which works especially well with wikiup, where content authors are always extending/subclassing their peers’ work.

    i like the brown image a lot, but it really requires some context – if you haven’t seen the character elsewhere it doesn’t make a lot of sense there. not so sure about the yellow background on the other image though.

  4. I like the look and feel; great ‘flavor’. The eyes have been done, I know I’ve seen them elsewhere but what really strikes me is that a spokescreature needs a mouth.

    Thinking of you in Ireland as St Patrick’s day nears. – I hope we hear some stories from you.
