Mascots can be a valuable tool to help connect with your audience, increase competitive spirit, and improve your organization’s presence. The right mascot can build your brand recognizable and ultimately increase in revenue. However, a bad mascot can even damage your brand and hurt your company’s reputation (here are a few). In this article, we will tell you a “mascot story” which included every stage of the creation process, to ensure that you get the perfect mascot for your business.
Consider your audience
Although mascots are likable by most people anytime and anywhere, the very first step is to determine how do you want your target audience to perceive the brand mascot. Next, you should create some personality or traits for your mascot to share the common values, culture, and behavior of your company to your audience. For example, children are funny and playful, but then bank customers are inclined to calm and friendly. Consequently, you can decide on how to introduce your company by selecting a mascot type. Is it an animal, an object, or a character? Ask yourself.
Create a concept art
Creating a mascot concept is the key step in the creative process. A perfect mascot character that you create not only will reflect your company vision but also will give your brand the “living face” and exact characteristic that you want to show to. In this step, you must avoid the unattractive product image such as washing floors detergent and toilet paper that look unaesthetic in advertising. However, you can use the alternative of creating a character like Mr. Clean for your product. Or you can tell us about your project and share the picture that you have. No worries if you do not have. Leave it to us! By looking at your specific needs, we can help you turn your ideas into sketches and create a unique mascot for your brand.
