I'm looking for a designer to create a product line of anime style figurines with specific poses and bases. The base of the figurines will usually be text-based signs with some method of connecting the figurine to the sign base. The full project includes approximately 20 designs however this job is for a main initial design sample and discussion. Most figurines can use the same characters in different poses which I assume may make this easier. I'd like someone that is open to discussion about the project, requirements for good product design, and potentially open to more jobs to keep the designs consistent. Please have some basic product design experience, previous work samples and a passion for this type of artwork. Previous experience with manufacturers and what they require for production is a bonus. Willing to negotiate on IP rights and an NDA will be provided e.g. portfolio display. Welcome further discussion on appropriate payment for future designs during first sample job. This job allows a lot of personal creativity to be expressed within few guidelines. I'm looking forward to working with you. *I've extended due date as I'm awaiting reference drawings from my illustrator. Thanks for all that have replied thus far. ** By anime I mean Manga / Japanese anime. This job is not for animation / cartoon.
