a Japanese logo? Leave it to us!
Do you know how many kanji characters are in regular use in Japan? Over 3,000. As an ideographic script, each kanji character contains a meaning, which is why there are so many of them. What this of course means is that they contain practically unlimited potential for designs. A traditional calligraphy typeface is perfect for an old-fashioned sushi shop, while more modern, geometric kanji designs can impart a slightly futuristic feel. So why not utilize the boundless expressiveness of kanji in your business or brand’s next logo design?
Japanese consists of a combination of kanji, hiragana, and katakana. Chinese uses only the kanji characters, but Japanese was started with a foundation of China’s kanji, and over many years created hiragana and katakana to go along with them. They use fewer lines than kanji, and the looser nature of their designs are one of their major appeals. Hiragana and katakana each consist of 46 characters, and they’re the first thing learned by people studying Japanese.
