Out of curiosity, did they think they were interchangeable words for the same thing? (Logo and mascot) or did they just, confuse them with one another?
They think they’re the same thing. It’s been an adventure trying to establish this with them. Like I’m getting paid no matter what, since I work at a firm and am paid a salary rather than commission, so I don’t really care – I’ll do whatever the client asks. But also I want them to do well, and I want them to be taken seriously as an innovative and advanced school program, which they won’t be if they use something like this as their “””logo”””:
