Design Our New Mascot!!!

Deadline extended!!

The Printworks is looking for a new mascot and we want you to design it. Our current mascot 'Harry the Hound' is due to retire in 2014 and we are looking for a more dynamic, fun character. We will be running a competition asking people to come up with our new mascot. The overall winning design will be crafted by one of the world's best movie makeup sculptors and artists, Shaune Harrison.



Shaune has worked on some of the biggest films ever made and is responsible for 'Voldemort' (Harry Potter), 'Red Skull' (Captain America) and has worked on dozens of other high profile films including 'Sleepy Hollow', 'Sunshine', 'Star Wars', 'World War Z' and 'Mission Impossible 2'. In 2014 he will be opening up a makeup academy in Manchester. You can follow his academy on Facebook here


We will be running a competition which will be open to people of all ages. There will be three winning categories... under 11's, under 16's, and 16 and over. Out of these three category one will be picked as The Printworks mascot. The winner will have their design created by Shaune and the mascot will have its own comic strip made for the quarterly News of the Works newspaper.The first strip will feature all three winning designs.
The overall winner will work with Shaune to develop the character and have the costume built.

What we are looking for-

We want our mascot to be interesting, dynamic and to represent The Printworks. The mascot has to symbolise fun. The Printworks would also like for the mascot to have a back story and history, perhaps connected with the legacy of the building. You can read a little on the buildings history here.

The competition closes on the 7th March 2014 and the winners will be announced mid-March. Finalists will be selected by The Printworks management team and the winners chosen by Shaune Harrison.
