our studio mascot is mr-takoyaki*
in japanese takoyaki is a snack food -made of octopus and shaped into balls..
but we thought mr-octopus balls didn't scan too well..
or
Monsieur boules de poulpe
señor bolas del pulpo
sig.sfere del polipo
esferas do polvo
meneer inktvis
氏タコの球
미스터 낙지 공
ο κύριος σφαίρες χταποδιών

and my favourite..
herr Krakekugeln..
we were looking to create a little fella that was both a character and a typographic symbol
we created so far 200 little flash files of him in different guises..
we are licensing them through our rep in the US
200 more to come..

Awesome work on the mascots, I can't pick out a favorite out of all of them.
And you're right, stuff in japonese seem to sound cooler, at least to us, europeans...

This is probably my favorite stuff from you now , Gary.
I would like to have this as a massive poster.
Great colors, and is also so modern and fashionable.
I smell the sucess.
