Mascot design for Perforce.com prominent code management software product, Swarm.
Don’t worry, you do not really have a 404 Error. That was the initial usage of the bee character, on the Swarm product’s error page.
It is used in Presentations, and it was later animated for use in videos
The bee design needed to be customizable so it would work in different character versions, and on T-shirts, and even as an icon within the product itself.
Initially the client wanted a more robotic-lookign bee design, but later we decided to evolve the bee to a more organic, rounder shape and versioned it out to create many different variations on the main theme.
I was also commissioned to produced a steampunk bee in a totally different style for use as a mascot for a mentoring program the company runs.
