Catchy, memorable brand names and stylish logos are assets to any budding business, but a mascot has unique appeal that can foster a friendly, personal relationship between company and customer. For businesses that are primarily web-based enterprises with very little face-to-face interaction with customers, mascots are an especially good way to put a smiling face in front of your clients, develop positive sentiments, and create a good rapport. Below are some of the web’s best website mascots.

Do you have any awesome mascots to add? Do you think mascots are a powerful way to connect with customers, or are they just an extra bit of polish on your website?

    Nice selection of mascots! It took me a while to choose whether to get one myself, I am very glad I did… although it is just a cartoon of me, I think it really adds to the website.

    You might want to include in that list. They have a hand illustrated construction worker as their mascot.

    I do think mascots are a powerful way to connect with customers. I think mascots have the same, if not better, influence on people visually, as what a well designed logo does. A well thought and designed Mascot is a great way to create brand awareness. I create Mascots for my clients all the time, and it makes a big difference. People like to be entertained… why not juice up your brand with a creative mascot? Maybe it’s just me…

    We’ve just added mascots to our own website, not realising we were riding the crest of the wave of the latest design trend! Clearly, cutting-edge comes naturally! ;)

    Really cool – always love those cool design / mascots etc.

    Does anybody know where is a good place to start for me to find a design/illustrator to create/design mascot/logo? Is there a hub site of illustrators or place where I can choose mascot or something? Please?

    Many thanks

    How about an investigation into what prompts web-based businesses into using monkeys as mascots? It seems to be a popular trend.
