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.
