Sampling of the sketches I'm working on with Dan Benjamin on the rebranding of 5by5 Studios.
Dan wanted to see a personalized character as a possible icon, so I spent time exploring these ideas in round 1.
From those sketches, I really liked the one I called "Happy Stormtrooper" who also happens to be wearing headphones.
I'm still early in the process, but if you are curious to see my sketches, I've decided to post the whole process on Flickr as I share it with Dan as an experiment in being open with the redesign:
BTW, I'm also posting inspirational design references there, which is why you see beer labels, etc. :-)

Thanks for posting this, Mike. I've been following your sketches and process since Ian Landsman started blogging about working with you on HelpSpot. Excited to see you posting that sort of thing here on Dribbble.
I dig the Happy Storm Trooper concept. 5x5 is also a phrase used heavily in Buffy the Vampire Slayer if there's any inspiration to be found there.
Look forward to seeing this evolve into the real deal.
Thanks Jason & Rich!
