View Full Version : Dinosaur Design sketches...

05 May 2002, 06:19 PM
Hi guys,
this is a repost from another forum....

I am working on an 3d animated ad for a computer consulting company, that requires a nerdy animated T-Rex.

I have made two sketches for the piece, one cartoony
one more or less realistic.

I am attaching the sketches, and I would love to hear your input.

Here is the first design

Here is the other....

What do you guys think?

Is nr 1 supposed to be nr 2's boss?
He looks like mine :)

Tell us where you're going with your ad, what's the concept?
What is the dinosaur going to do in the ad? Give us a context, it's hard to tell now.

The second looks most nerdy, but I gess you figured that one out yourself allready :hmm:

Thanks for the quick response...

The Ad is for a consulting company called

Their motto is
"Our Nerds have more byte"
and the first ad is a Nerd Dino
attacking the MicroBytes logo.

The first one is not a nerd. Nerds are not that agressive.
How about the second one with an enormous OVERbite? LOL

2nd's a lot better :thumbsup:

Be carefull not to make him look dumb. Clients hate that.
Why is he attacking the logo? Is the company THAT bad?

Don't want to be offensive, I just spend halve my live in advertising.

Good luck,

Well I wanted to emphasize the fact that
"Our Nerds are better than their nerds"
Thus more aggressive.

The idea is that at the end he throws a letter
from the logo to the "camera " and then he
jumps on top of the "camera man".

"Agression" does not equal "better"
So... at a higher nerdiness-level.

Howabout this:
A simple zooming in on an extremely nerdie looking person, with a giant overbite. (maybe nerdie music like Abba in the background).
Text-over (=that english, mean like a voiceover in text) reads: "thank goodness he could never get a girl in highschool when there comes smoke out of your server".
"he's our biggest stud... your network will love him when it goes down".

Logo, payoff, etc.


Or something like that.

Sorry dude.
But that's what happens when you get a deus-ex-machina in your concept-thinking. :twisted:
****s up your mind doesn't it...


BTW There's an allmost identical one running as a print-campain here in Holland for XS4all. I know, all you dutch guys.

Okay I'll try another idea..

How about this:
Using the idea of an extremely nerdie looking t rex
reading a tech manual in a cubicle/server room.

"Our tech people are hungry monsters for knowledge... your network will love him when it goes down".

And the t-rex eats the book ater reading it.
