Sensu got their new character or mascot by running a design contest:
Portland Tech Company seeks "cute monitor lizard"-inspired mascot
Check out Sensu's Character or mascot contest…
Sensu is an infrastructure and application monitoring solution for medium to large size companies.
What's your vision?
Hi there! I'm a local business owner in Portland. We develop an enterprise monitoring solution, and we are interested in commissioning a new mascot for our marketing materials and the SWAG we give away at tech conferences (etc). Our software is written in the Golang programming language , so we have taken inspiration from the "Go Gopher"  by the amazing Renee French , and even used its likeness on our website (with permission) . We would like to commission an original cartoon "monitor lizard"  mascot in a similar style as the Go Gopher, to be used in a variety of situations (e.g. performing various activities, and/or interacting with logos or mascots of partner companies) . Reference material: : https://golang.org : https://blog.golang.org/gopher : https://reneefrench.blogspot.com : https://sensu.io/learn : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monitor_lizard : https://github.com/ashleymcnamara/gophers or https://github.com/egonelbre/gophers Thanks in advance for your time & consideration!
See attached for copies of the Sensu brand guideline, Sensu logo, and some examples of how we've used the Golang Gopher with the Sensu logo (which we'd like to replace with our new mascot).
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Character or mascot starts at $349.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their character or mascot.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Sensu collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
