Olly the Octopus sets sail as Condor’s new mascot

Condor Ferries unveiled its new mascot, Olly the Octopus, on Condor Liberation earlier this month.

And 12-year-old Caroline Carter, from Guernsey, whose design clinched last year’s Condor Ferries Design a Mascot competition, was on board as her tentacled brainchild set sail for the first time.

Caroline beat off 1,300 other entries to win the pan-Channel Islands competition, and her design has been made into a soft toy which is now available on board in Condor’s duty free shops.

The process of turning Caroline’s drawing into a toy was overseen by a team from Condor Ferries, helping to ensure that her original concept and design was used to help bring Olly to life.

Alicia Andrews of Condor Ferries said: “Caroline’s drawing really stood out to us and we loved that she used our brand colours.  Working with Caroline to bring her design to life was an exciting experience for everyone involved - after producing a prototype version of Olly, we then asked for feedback from different audiences, before the final version was commissioned.

“We’re absolutely delighted Olly has been made in to a cuddly toy and hope he will bring a lot of enjoyment to our younger travellers.”
