We are looking for a character, mascot or illustration to go along with our company name and logo which is attached. We want something along the lines of a Michelin Man, M&M’s, Marlboro man, Tony the Tiger or Jolly Green Giant, something tied to Surplus Service i.e. Surplus man? Someone or a character that "removes surplus electronics and e-waste and upcycles them for a better environmental option than simply recycling". It would be, your savory to meet your company surplus electronics needs. It should exude trustworthy, fast, strong and dependable service. Want something that could be kind of goofy but is definitely memorable, recognizable but also professional.
