For the web design company WebSubstance I designed and built their mascot. During the design process I worked closely with the client in exploring different designs of the robot by submitting different variations. One of the things that I like about working with new clients is the exploration process in bringing their ideas to life.
Even though CG is a pretty common medium now, it can still be intimidating to those that don't work in it. When I'm working with a client that doesn't have a lot of CG experience, I try to make the creative process as forgiving as possible so they aren't intimidated by the technology. I encourage my clients to voice all of their creative concerns and then leave me the responsibility in overcoming the technical challenges.
