Design Inspiration

Every city needs a superhero and Edinburgh has Super Giraffe! Handsome, fearless and incredibly strong. Super Giraffe has supersonic hearing and telescopic vision and he can fly at the speed of light. But that’s not all, because Super Giraffe also has a special power that comes in handy from time to time – he can shoot laser beams from his ossicones. Resplendent in his golden cape, belt and boots, Super Giraffe is always ready to help keep the people of Edinburgh safe. Super Giraffe was designed and executed by Edinburgh based artist Pamela McMahon using acrylic paints in a selection of her favourite vibrant colours. She hopes Super Giraffe will bring a smile to children and adults alike.
