I started by sorting out some possible designs idea for my products. I came up with 6 design ideas that could be appropriate for the dental clinic mascot for kids.

1. Dentist.

To indicate that my mascot is a design for a dental clinic, this design focuses on the image of the dentist, who is kind of the leader of the clinic. I tried to dress my mascot in the green surgeon clothes glasses to show that my product actually looks like the dentist. Since the target audience of my mascot is children, I had to make my mascot look cute and kind. Therefore, I made my mascot in small size, with a smiling face.

2. Hero

Since the target audience of my mascot is children, I had to make my mascot heroic and cool so that it can attract the audience. Therefore I made a hero mascot, whose body is muscular wears hero clothes which has a drawing of a tooth on them.

3. Tooth.

To indicate that my mascot is a design for a dental clinic, this design focuses on the image of tooth, which is a topic of the clinic. The target audience of my mascot is children, so I had to make my mascot look cute and kind. Therefore, I made my mascot in small size, with a smiling face.

4,5. Toothbrush, Toothpaste

To indicate that my mascot is a design for a dental clinic, this design focuses on the toothbrush, which are the key items of brushing teeth. This mascot will be able to encourage children to brush their teeth thoroughly. Since the target audience of my mascot is children, I had to make my mascot look cute and kind. Therefore, I made my mascot in small size, with a smiling face.

6. Face

To indicate that my mascot is a design for a dental clinic, this design focuses on the face with a shining teeth, which encourages the children to brush their teeth. Also, I made the face smile so that it gives a positive image for the audience.

Among these choices, I chose tooth design for my final product. I did so because it was the most attractive design for the children (because it looks so cute) and it clearly represents a dental clinic.

Based on the tooth design ideas, I tried to come up with 6 possible designs. Amongst these designs, I chose the last one for my final product. I did so because it was visually attractive. This mascot is meant to be the hero that protects the teeth, so it is dressed in the hero cloak. Therefore, it looks cool and attractive, so it is suitable for my target audience: children. Adding on, I combined the image of tooth, toothbrush, and toothpaste, so it clearly represents the image of the dental clinic.

The design that I chose was motivated by this character, which is the protagonist of the game Hollow Knight. To satisfy my target audeicne (children), I need to make a design which looks both cool and cute. Therefore, I decided to refer to this design, which also looks cool and cute.

To add to the heroic image of my character, I decided to make my character use the toothbrush as if it is a weapon. I thought using both toothbrush and toothpaste is too complicated, so I deleted toothpaste.

 

Lastly, I drew my character in a cool posing. I wanted to highlight the fact that my mascot uses the toothbrush as a weapon to clean children’s mouth, so I searced up some image on google.

 

This picture was the motif of my mascot’s pose. I really liked how the character swings his weapon widely and the blue trace of it. Also, the fact that the character stands in one leg makes the character even more dynamicTherefore, I drew my character to swing the toothbrush widely and to stand on one foot. I also drew the sketch of the trace.

I added the mask on my mascot to highlight the sanity of my character, and this is my final sketch.

I can assure that my design was successful because it was visually attractive for my target audiences. The target audience of my mascot is children, so I had to make my mascot look cool. This mascot is meant to be the hero that protects the teeth, so it is dressed in the hero cloak with the toothbrush lance. Therefore, it looks cool and attractive, beingĀ  suitable for my target audience. Also, this mascot has a image of tooth and toothbrush, which clearly represents dental clinic.

 

The goal of my design is to make the mascot that looks cool so that it attracts children and to represent a dental clinic. I did so through the image hero with the cloak, swinging the toothbrush. I am thinking of coloring the cloack in red, a tooth in grey, and the trace in blue. The final product will be made with the ipad, and I will trace my scatch using the and color it. To do that, I will need some drawing skills with ipad, so I will ask for the help of my friends and Mr. Griffin.
