Our mascot was originally designed by Jason Davis, in November of 2008. Drawn on a napkin at the Widows Tavern, in Stockertown, PA it’s here that The Searchers not only found its mascot but also its first official name, The Northeast Paranormal Investigative Team. While the name was altered slightly to the Northeast Paranormal Society (and eventually dropped altogether) the secondary name written on the napkin has stuck: The Searchers.
To give The Searchers mascot new life a digital artist, and friend of The Searchers, Connor Goodman, was asked to digitally render and initiate the mascots first regeneration. Two years later, freelance digital artist Mark Jarmin, was asked to give the mascot even more personality. Under Mark’s artistic vision The Searchers mascot entered its second and current regeneration. It’s also under Mark’s hand that The Searchers mascot family grew with a new female version of The Searchers ghost as well as The Jersey Devil mascot.
