Frontier Japan logo I by arpad Frontier Japan logo I by arpad
FrontierJapan is a marketing and trends company based in Japan

I was sketching some symbols that remind me the japanese culture and I was trying to fit in the concept of the company. Then I saw an article about Ikebana, a traditional japanese flower arrangement. I didn't know that but Japan is intimatly bonded to flowers. And so this is my brainstorm for the first attempt: flower, seed, culture, expand, open, rise to world. The typography is PLEXES, from Dino Santos, an awesome type designer and I think it combines strength and readability, blending with the symbol's elegancy. Main corporate colors are arterial red and golden. I think this color scheme is great because it looks great, modern and yet classy.

I hope you like this, c&f are welcome, specially advanced critique :)
Thank you my Deviant friends,

Amazing! :+fav:
God damn... The thing I love the most in your projects is that before creating you are making research of some... spiritual, cultural symbols and you are attaching them into logo, that's fantastic.
Nice, man.

This is what I call a great idea. Coming to the thought of Ikebana, and mixing this with "open" and "rise to the world" I really believe you designed the perfect logo for this company. What I like most about it are the colors here; catchy and matching. Beautiful!
