Beans4Good sells premium coffee as a fund-raiser for schools and nonprofit groups. Kids and their parents take our order forms and marketing materials and sell coffee to their friends and family. The school or organization then keeps a percentage of the profits to be used for their programs. I need a fun, creative, hip mascot that both kids and parents will love. It should be hip enough that teenagers would even want to buy a t-shirt with our mascot printed on it.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
It's primarily elementary and jr high school age kids. But, high school kids should think our mascot image is very cool as well. The mascot will be printed on our marketing materials and be displayed on our website - which will be view by people of all ages.
It needs to be a cartoon like coffee bean.
There shouldn't be any text on the mascot - not even our company name.
It should be easily recognizable as a coffee bean - so, don't use any weird colors. The coffee bean itself should be some type of brown. The coffee bean could be holding a cup of coffee - but it doesn't have to. If it is holding a cup of coffee then the coffee cup should have Beans4Good logo on it.
The type of emotions that I want the image to evoke are: fun, cool, hip, and should produce a chuckle when someone sees it.
File type: Should be a vector image.
Examples: If you do an image search for "cool beans coffee" you will see a coffee bean holding an ice cream cone and a cup of coffee. The image of that coffee bean is what I have in mind. But, I don't want any text in my image. Obviously, I don't want to copy what they have.
Another image I like that may give you inspiration. Do an image search for "Big Kahuna fundraising". You will see a cartoon image of a little Hawaiian guy wearing a grass skirt holding up a cookie in one hand and a spear in the other. Thats what I mean by fun and should produce a chuckle when you see it.
Be creative and have fun with it!
I've now guaranteed the prize.
I want to stick with the Safari theme. Preferably Indiana Jones style hat or maybe a safari pith helmet. black sunglasses. sandals. shorts.
