I operate an Indoor Playground & Cafe and would love to find out how to make my mascot/logo into a 4' custom LEGO sculpture. Any assistance appreciated!

A bit of looking indicates that LDD will generate instructions and parts list but I am not competent with this type of CAD software. Additionally, LEGO no longer 'makes my model'.

The cheapest way to go about doing this is to design it yourself, like you said, using one of the LEGO cad softwares (LEGO Digital Designer, LDraw, MLCAD, etc.). Then, buy the pieces and build it. However, that takes a lot of time, and unless you are experienced, may not turn out so good.

The easiest (but also likely expensive) way to do this is to hire a LEGO certified professional. The LEGO certified professionals are LEGO enthusiasts who have turned that passion into a business, and are officially recognized by LEGO for their work and skill.

I would contact a certified professional and see how much they need to design and build your logo.

A big Scratch Cat was designed and creating in the following way, according to a Scratch Team member:

The Lego company very generously helped us create a version of the Scratch cat made of Lego. My friend Duks and I made a 3D model using Rhino, and we sent it to Lego for fabrication. A few months later we got a big crate containing... this!

This seems to be a successful mix of the two methods from Nick's answer.
