Logos From Japan

Counter Print

Logos from Japan 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 Counter-Print carried out a survey of graphic design and illustration titled From Japan. There was much that could not be included within this volume, in particular the vast sphere of logo design, which was only touched upon. Here, they have chosen to revisit this culturally intriguing country and 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.
