By Dean Schwartz (SWAG Master): Designing and producing a custom mascot is something we really enjoy at SOBO. Because let’s face it, mascots are fun! They’re big, they’re fluffy and they’re lovable. Designing a custom mascot also lets us unleash our creativity. There are endless creative opportunities when you are working to bring a drawing to life. In the past, we have designed a bluejay mascot for Johnston Farms, a bug mascot for DoodleBugs, and many others. Today we are going to take a closer look at a custom mascot for a good cause, Bob the Bobcat.
Custom Mascot for a Good Cause
Horizons Community Development Corporation in Lake County, FL contacted us for some help. They are running a campaign entitled “I’m Here All Year“, which shines a light on absenteeism in schools. The goal is to raise awareness of the importance of attending school every day and to help parents and students see the advantages of coming to school daily.
To help promote the campaign they were looking to bring to life some of the schools’ mascots. First up was Bob the Bobcat from Sawgrass Bay Elementary school. We got hard to work on designing and we made sure to get Bob the Bobcat looking exactly like they wanted. The end result was one good looking bobcat!
We loved working with Horizons CDC, and they reciprocated. They gave us a ringing endorsement, which we pasted below. We also want to thank Horizons CDC for the great work they are doing in the community.
“I wanted to not only endorse but emphatically recommend SOBO Concepts to anyone looking for a top-notch partner to work with their project and product…SOBO met and exceeded all our needs.” – Horizons CDC
