GasSure recently collaborated with Auchenharvie Academy Secondary School to give 1st, 2nd & 3rd year pupils an opportunity to create a company brand mascot.
GasSure reached out to the local School’s Head Teacher, Calum Johnston, to discuss the potential project. The aim of the competition was to submit original design ideas of a family friendly, fun character, relevant to the company and tagline ‘’Warming the Heart of Scotland.’’
The pupils received help and encouragement in their art class and submitted an overwhelming 73 submissions in total.
GasSure awarded the three finalists, Matthew McCann, 1st place, Lee Wainwright, 2nd place and Josslynn Cocozza, 3rd place with a Cass Art voucher each.
With the help of design agency Creo Design, the winning character was recreated into a figure and has already started to feature in a lot of marketing material including a recurring advert in the paper and school appearances from full size mascot costume.
In a further competition within the company, the mascot has been given the scottish inspired name ‘Flameish’, by GasSure Maintenance Engineer, David Robertson.
