“We are very keen to welcome a new mascot into The Printworks family. I’m sure the winner will design us an awe-inspiring new mascot which expert designer Shaune will then bring to life. We are very honoured to have the help of such a movie legend and it’s a great opportunity for the winner to gain valuable experience too. We have already had some great suggestions and we look forward to seeing what else people come up with”
