sspecchi got their new character or mascot by running a design contest:
Mascot for Corning Community College
Check out sspecchi's Character or mascot contest…
We are a community college in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. Our campus is set on 550 acres. We are on top of a hill, have a nature center, and enjoy beautiful scenery and lots of nature. Our mission is to transform lives through learning. We have more than 40 academic programs and offer associate's degrees and certificates. Some of our students come directly from high school. Others have worked for years and are returning to school to prepare for a promotion or a new career. Many of our students transfer to a 4-year school to earn a bachelor's degree. Our faculty make the difference ... they are truly committed to our students' success. We have a variety of support services in place -- both academically and administratively. We provide an opportunity for students to earn an affordable degree and are part of the State University of New York (SUNY) system.
What's your vision?
We want a mascot that will help us build relationships with students and members of the broader community. The mascot must interface equally well with CCC students, children in the community, and adults in the community. We are (and will remain) the Red Barons, which is likely a tribute to a man named Baron van Steuben, who was very important to our region. We would like the mascot to be ... an animal, express positivity, be fierce but not scary, be community-oriented, be unique, be impressive, be fun, evoke a sense of spirit and pride in the college, be inclusive. The mascot must be able to wear clothes and move freely (dance, hug, cheer, walk in parades, etc.). We do not want a cartoon character and the mascot must stand the test of time ... so not trendy. A little flash is ok, but nothing obnoxious. Because the mascot must be unique, we do NOT want a wolf, bee, cougar, falcon, cat, lake monster, jayhawk, jaguar, bird, horse, hawk, duck, shark, or panther. These animals are used by other community colleges in our state-wide system.
The chosen design will be recreated as a life-sized costume. It will also be used in print materials (black/white and color), electronically (email messages, social media), and for merchandise (screen printed/embroidered). Whatever is designed must be able to be represented in all of these formats. Also, this will be a 2-step process. A small group of students will review the designs submitted and pick their top 3. These 3 will be showed to the entire student body and put to a vote. This vote will happen in April, as we have to work it around other surveys happening at the college. Once the students pick their favorite, we will award the prize and close the contest. Per recommendations from 99designs, the contest will be put on hold during this period so designers can submit to other contests. Please call or email with questions. 607-962-9109 or email@example.com.

And then… they selected a winner!
Mick was an absolute pleasure to work with! We love the design he came up with so much! We even plan to get it printed on t-shirts and stuff we hadn't planned on before. Thanks Mick! - All the best, Briana
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
