My character is a Walrus, I chose a walrus as I felt that it would appeal to males of all ages as children may find him funny or interesting and older males may relate with regard to his appearance or lifestyle. I wanted to use human elements such as the deckchair, party hats etc. to add a touch of humour to the characters (I included various other sea creatures as 'friends' for the walrus to celebrate with) and to make them versatile in use. The colours are characteristically male without being specific towards any particular hobbies or activities so that they relate to a wider audience. I tried to keep them light and simple with the block colours and text to make them more eye-catching.
