What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We would like to ship a set of "emoticons" in our product that are more tailored for our audience (software engineers). They should be good at conveying emotion and tone and help improve communication and empathy between team members.
We are looking for a set of 16-24 icons (we will be happy to pay more for more images, not sure how that works here), which should look good down to 32px. Prefer vector illustrations, hand drawn, and "fun". They don't have to be highly polished, just highly great at communication emotions.
iStockPhoto had some interesting choices we liked, but our software license (Apache 2 - free forever) doesn't work well. Your designs will be given away for free and used by millions. :3
Please read our site http://phabricator.org/ to get a sense of our humor. We want work to be fun. Your designs should be as well!
