Announcement of Wernhil’s ‘Design a Mascot Challenge’

Wernhil would proudly like to announce and congratulate Miss Xamira Hangara as the winner of our ‘Design a Mascot Challenge’, Xamira was the artist of “Miss Jovi” later renamed to Jovi and who walked away with a prize of N$10,000.00 in cash.

Jovi described by Xamira the artist:  “Jovi short for Jovial, is one of Namibia’s most common natural beauties, always prepared to help and make what could have been havoc a more enjoyable time at the pulse of the city. The rainbow spectrum patches symbolizes the reflection of diversity and joy Wernhil has to offer. Rest assured that Jovi will be there to assist you in your time of need and make you feel at home.”

Jovi will not only represent Wernhil, but also make your shopping experience more enjoyable. She’s fun, exciting and ready to take on the Pulse of the City.

During the competition we received a total of 169 entries showing amazing creative designs and ideas. The voting panel included Wernhil Tenants, the Public and Wernhil Management. With the consent of Xamira, a few minor changes were made to the Mascot design, to integrate Wernhil more and make it easier to manufacture.

Wernhil would like to thank everyone who entered this challenge and being part of this amazing journey, your effort and creativity truly reflects what we stand for “The Pulse of the City”

At the moment, Jovi is being manufactured and will soon, bring joy and laughter to your shopping spree at Wernhil.
