Experience Level: Intermediate
Information for the business: Server Monitoring App for Android
Industry: Technology
Design details: Hello People Per Hour,
I work for a software company, marketing our server and website monitoring tool. I'm looking to find a talented illustrator who's able to work alongside me on a simple comic strip to communicate the benefits of our new Android app.

It would be very beneficial if you understand what a system administrator does to fully understand the project (they're our target market) -


At this point it's worth introducing our company mascot / resident sysadmin, Toshi (please see the helpful materials for a visual). He appears in and around some of our marketing literature and will be the main character in this project. His characteristics:

1. He's a System Administrator.
2. He's a little camera shy.
3. Apart from his appearance, he's just a normal person and does normal things.


Now onto what the Android app does, and hence what the illustrations will need to communicate. There need to be 4 scenes in the comic strip, the illustrations need to support the following 4 messages:

1. Toshi can't tell the difference between a text message from his friends and alerts from his Server Density account. He changes his alert sound to one of the custom ones in the app.

Size: 600px x 300px

2. He gets alerted of a problem on his phone and stops what he is doing - could be sleeping? Could be drinking tea? Could be rock climbing? Whatever looks interesting to illustrate.

Size: 440px x 300px

3. Looks at his phone and builds a picture of / imagines what might be going on with his infrastructure.

Size: 1888px x 500px

4. He gets his laptop out (wherever he was in scene 2) and fixes the problem by pressing a big provision more button on the screen.

Size: 1488px x 500px

Please introduce yourself and provide a link to your portfolio (if it's not hosted on People Per Hour). I look forward to hearing from you soon,

Target audience: System Administrators / Developers / Engineers

Where the design will be used: web
Extra notes: See: for page with the same purpose - just on iPhone.
