Denis is a very talented illustrator with a unique style. He interpreted our brief perfectly and came up with a brilliant composition that we fell in love with straight away. He was also very responsive to our feedback and managed to improve an already great illustration even further. Cannot be happier with the final artwork.

UpDog is a mobile app for upvoting and downvoting the best viral content.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
The character - UpDog - who will be the app's icon and appear on its main screen.
I'm imagining a dog with either markings or some kind of visual cue indicating 'up' (preferably the ^ arrow without a stem, though the other arrow type shown is OK too).
Any breed is OK if the final product looks good - and designs substituting a hot dog for an actual dog will also be seriously considered.
I'm looking for something playful but not childish - think Meerkat's icon as opposed to Blue's Clues.
Flat logos (2-3 colors) are preferred to match the style of the app.
I'll need a few dozen other icons and graphics matching the visual style of the dog - categories (sort of like Vine), stickers to overlay on photos, etc. So please submit UpDog icons that you think can eventually match well with other graphics, and only submit if you're available for follow-up work.
