Hackbot for Nottingham’s Hack24

Hack24 was a Nottingham based 24 hours coding event. The organisers, Emma Seward and Andrew Seward hired me to illustrate the mascot, Hackbot, for the 2018 event.

I started by sketching a few character design concepts. I drew these on an iPad Pro in the app Procreate.

They picked their favourite robot design and I sketched an outline.

Once they were happy with the character outline, I illustrated the final character design in Adobe Illustrator.

The illustration was supplied as PDF vector file so it could be scaled to any print size. Which was important as Hackbot was printed on a human sized pop up stand and tiny stickers!
