High Impact Custom Avatar Design
AnimatedBanner.com offers personalized, fully custom character and avatar design that is sure to set you apart from the crowd. You’ve seen custom avatars on popular website headers, logos, Facebook, Twitter, and just about every social media site there is. Custom avatars and characters are a hot trend that just keeps growing, and we are glad to offer high quality custom avatar design to you at very reasonable prices with very personalized service. At AnimatedBanner.com you always communicate directly with the designers and never a sales person or project manager. I work one-on-one with clients for all custom avatar design projects and custom character concept design projects.
We are not a production line character creation ‘factory’ and I create all custom avatars and characters myself. They take several hours each to create (the one of the blonde model above has more than 1500 layers) and our average price is about $150-$350 each (per character and depending on complexity – and if you are looking for a simple, basic avatar the cost could be significantly less). Our custom avatar designs are created in vector format so that can be used at any size with no pixelation or quality loss. They will work for anything from a small Facebook avatar or email signature on up to the size of a billboard. We provide the final custom avatar design in all common web/digital and print formats so you will have no problem putting it to great use anywhere and everywhere.
As you can see, the quality is much higher than the cheap basic avatars and characters offered by many others – but they are not as complex as the semi-realistic 3D models created by specialist concept character designers. I can create your custom avatar from a photo (the higher quality, the better) and I can also do concepts for non-avatar characters and mascots of many kinds based on a description .
Since this is a custom, personalized service, I can’t accept all project offers and those I can accept depend on my current workload and whether or not I think I can do a great job on the character. We also sometimes have a short waiting list for character design and avatar design projects.
How to get your custom avatar design or custom concept character
Just use our contact form to let us know what you have in mind and what you’d like to use it for (header graphic, social media, logo, book cover, etc.). Once you have contacted us, you can send us the photo you’d like to use for your custom avatar design by email and I’ll get back to you and let you know if I can do it or not – and if I can, I’ll provide you with information on options for the use you require and a price quote along with estimated turnaround time.
Note: We respect your privacy and will not display your custom avatar or character in any promotional materials or portfolios.
