Mascot Maker or Costume Designer Art Commission

We are looking for a designer to create our new project mascot.

Job Summary

We are currently seeking a skilled Costume Designer for a unique art commission. The chosen candidate will have experience in creating human size mascots. Our renowned Laura I. Art Gallery is embarking on a captivating environmental community project in just 2 months. We are excited to find a talented individual who can bring our mascot, Noah the Planet, to life. Noah is the central figure in our highly successful project, Noah’s Ark, which has garnered an impressive engagement of 50,000 participants both in-person and online. If you possess the necessary skills and creativity, we invite you to join our team and contribute to this exciting venture.

We are seeking a talented individual who has a passion for creating mascots and can work efficiently within deadlines. The mascot must be waterproof and crafted using fabric and potentially foam materials. Timeliness is crucial, as we require the mascot to be completed as soon as possible. Attention to detail is of utmost importance.


The desired shape of the mascot is that of a planet, and despite its substantial width and size, it should be able to fit through standard doors, necessitating its adaptability to being easily squished.
