Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Target audience: Computer security professionals.
What we do: Pentester Academy is a digital library of highly technical, hands-on, comprehensive cyber security (both attack and defense) courses. In addition, we offer accompanying books (published), offline training courses and products.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
The mascot will be used to represent Pentester Academy in all of our products and services. The mascot should represent keywords such as: strength, cyberwarrior, modern warfare, security, attack/defense, ethical hacking, preparedness and astuteness. The mascot should not use the stereotypical symbols related to security, such as a shield or medieval weaponry. The mascot should also be simple, not with many details. The mascot may also be displayed in a variety of positions (e.g. presenting, aggressive posture, etc.). Previous iterations we have used include a version of Tux (the Linux penguin) dressed in cyber warfare gear because Linux is closely associated with cybersecurity. A take on this idea is fine as long as it is not cute or overly aggressive looking. EDIT: We are actually looking to move away from the use of living beings and opting for something more robotic.
Although we have yet to establish our corporate brand and style guide, we are heavily leaning towards the use of a darker shade of blue as our primary color, which we would like to incorporate into this mascot. Accompanying color may vary between red and orange, but we are flexible. Again, convey strength, astuteness and modern cyber warfare. We have attached our temporary logo, which is on the 'cute' side.
