I'm building a site to help companies hire great talents. Companies enter the job description they're trying to fill, and we suggest them a few candidates. The site is cool, easy to use, classy.
Early stage start-ups.
We want a pig as a character for our website.
It should be similar to pigs looking for truffles. Check truffle pigs on google or wikipedia.
We're going to display the characters to indicate to companies we're searching for candidates, we've found candidates, and just on the homepage.
Ideally, I'd like three states of the pig: normal, looking for a truffle, and happy.
It should be fun, but also classy (similar to mailchimp).
The image should be working as a small part of the page (again, like mailchimp).
It can cartoonish, but not too much.
Check out http://www.whitetruffle.com to see an example (even though we won't use that one, not personal enough).
