We are an industrial design studio from Barcelona TRIADISSENY. This is the mascot that we would have liked to offer to you, but unfortunately we couldn’t. As you will see, in our web site: http://www.triadisseny.cat, it is the Cheshire Cat, we thought that it was a traditional English icon. We designed a mascot that went together with the Logo, this was our intention.

It is a pity but we couldn’t register for the competition, in our opinion, the rules were intended for big companies, we tried to contact some companies but we didn’t receive any response.

On the other hand, it seemed reasonable that the company to win the contest had to be English and, for us, compete would mean a great effort without much hope.

By the way, we designed the mascot of the 2008 International Expo, where the theme was the water.

Anyways, we want to show you what we have done and we hope you like it.

They stray away from convention and definitely aren’t clichés.

They may not be to everyone’s taste to begin with but I’m sure they’ll grow on people!

Hopefully the sotry behind them will also inspire people to look into their local history more too!

At least they aren’t the clichés of yester year!

Good show!
