Memorable website mascots

Logo and character designs are often powerful ways of projecting and enhancing a site/company’s brand. Every day, we would see dozens of corporate mascots (like KFC, 7 Up etc.).

Here are 5 website mascots that are beautiful, convey the purpose of the website and/or serve other purposes. None of these are huge websites, but please suggest your favorite mascots (both offline, corporate mascots and online ones) in comments. Onto the list then:

    Without a doubt, I would have to say that the first one is my favorite. It is the most visually appealing and the most clever in that he uses it to alert visitors to his availability status.

    These are all generic cartoonish characters, none remotely rememberable. I can only remember photoshop Lady’s character because it reminds me of my super hot ex slut geek girlfriend who i’d take back in a heart beat.

    Nads, I really hate that damn pretentious bug eyed Americanime wanna be. Just like the content on the site, and the continually sub par layout of lists, I really hope they’re not really trying.

    Pathetic list, I usually bitch about extensive lists but this one is disgustingly brief.
