Memo Inc got their new character or mascot by running a design contest:
Design an owl avatar ("friendly and quirky professor") for a learning product
Check out Memo Inc's Character or mascot contest…
Memo is a place to discover and save great ideas. Some of our users call it the Pinterest for ideas. Utility-wise, it's the simplest, fastest way to get smarter.
What's your vision?
We're looking for an illustration of a personified owl that works as an avatar in small sizes (think avatars on medium.com). The avatar will be used to personify a friendly and quirky professor that recommends things to learn to users of a web site for discovering and sharing ideas (https://memo.co/). (Eventually we'd expect it to become a mascot for the product/company as well.) We're looking for the mood to be more positive/excited than happy. We think glasses would work well. As for graphic styles, we like smooth (vector based), expressive, classic Disney/Pixar cartoon "feel" more than folksy illustrations. That is, something like a polished/finished version of: http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/1284/2082/1600/mutantkitten_owls.jpg

Alex was amazing to work with and really put a lot of effort into showing us how our brand could come to life. He went above and beyond others to show us how our logo would look against cool images, t shirts, graphics etc. He seemed genuinely excited to help bring our brand to live and passionate about what he does!! Super creative!! Thanks Alex!!!! We LOVE our new logo!!!!!!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
