lindsay.orlowski got their new character or mascot by running a design contest:
Home of the Lions! Design a school mascot
Check out lindsay.orlowski's Character or mascot contest…
We are a coeducational independent school in Seattle, WA for grades 5-12.
What's your vision?
The Lakeside School Athletics mascot is a lion. We need a visual depiction of the lion that represents the strength and energy of our athletics program, is embraced by students and coaches, and ignites school spirit for Lakeside Athletics. The mascot needs to have an athletic feel and represent all teams, grades 5-12. It will be used in many contexts including uniforms, apparel, environmental signage, and the Lakeside School website. Please note: the artwork for this project needs to be an original illustration; not stock illustration/clip art.
We conducted a survey of our students about Lakeside School Athletics and the lion mascot. Students described experiencing teamwork, energy, competition, challenge, fun, and friendship in the Lakeside School Athletics program. Students imagined an image of the Lakeside School lion mascot and the top words used to describe the lion were: strong, confident, fierce, brave, and competitive. The top physical attributes were: has a mane, strong, fast, sleek, and poised. Lakeside School colors are maroon (PMS 195) and gold (PMS 124). We are looking for a lion depiction that is two-color. There is an existing lion in the Lakeside School logo, but it does not have an athletic feel so we are not looking to pursue that direction. We are open to a depiction of just the head of the lion or the full body of the lion. We use a varsity “L” on current athletics gear. Lakeside School offers 13 sports: track and field, volleyball, swimming, soccer, golf, football, cross country, crew, basketball, wrestling, baseball, lacrosse, and tennis.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Character or mascot starts at $499.
