Goody will be the first mascot in the history of the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell
In a year scarred by the impact of the pandemic, the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell – 68th Trofeo Conde de Godó presents a novelty of great significance that will further encourage the intense activity of the tournament, the Goody mascot. A creation of the prestigious artist Philipp Stanton, that without a doubt, will become one of the symbols of the tournament with his fun and sympathetic shape. Goody is a dragon inspired by the famous work by Antoni Gaudí that transmits the values of the city of Barcelona and includes the concepts of sport, health, ‘fair play’ and tennis effort. This friendly mascot will help to connect with the younger public and will allow it to continue to promote the prestige of the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell on the international sports scene.
Stanton is an American artist and creator living in Barcelona since 1988. He directs the Stanton Studio design group in Barcelona, from which he has created visual projects in numerous fields. Whether as an illustrator, designer, or painter, his work includes large-format urban projects, children’s books, set designs or advertising campaigns.
His interest in sports activity has also been a source of inspiration for this remarkable artist who has achieved a great number of awards in different countries. He participated in the creation of the image for the 1999 Champions League final (Manchester United vs Bayern Munich) played at the Camp Nou and designed the mascot and logo for the 2003 Barcelona Police and Firefighter Games, as well as creating the poster commemorating the centenary of the Real Club de Tenis Barcelona – 1899.
The mascot will have an intense activity during the celebration of the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell (from April 17 to 25) and will be present both on and off the courts. He will also have a prominent role in the digital environment of the tournament, where he will star in numerous actions that we will discover.
