Logos from Japan

Logos from Japan

We are very pleased to announce the launch of our new book, ‘Logos from Japan’, which contains a selection of symbols and logos from this beguiling country. These logos have been carefully selected to help convey the richness, variety and vitality of Japan’s logo design.

A few years ago we carried out a survey of graphic design and illustration titled ‘From Japan’. There was much that we could not include within this volume, in particular the vast sphere of logo design, which was only touched upon. Here we have chosen to revisit this culturally intriguing country, to pay particular attention to this area of creative expertise. 

One reason Japanese design stands apart from that of many other countries, is that it doesn’t always follow the strict international code of design in evidence today. Japanese design is unique in the way that it unites traditional and modern aspects of design. As such, ‘Logos from Japan’ presents a contemporary study of logo design from this country that is vivid and varied in its vernacular. 

We hope this book will be of lasting importance to those practicing or studying graphic design, or to anyone with an interest in Japanese art and design.
