Japanese town logos

29 Jun

This blew my mind! So apparently it is a common thing for small towns in Japan to have their own official logo. They’re surprisingly like corporate graphics but there are some amazing forms in there. Apparently they often incorporate typography (Japanese obviously) and sometimes ‘the more complex logos encode the name of the town into a puzzle-like symbol that begs to be deciphered.’ How mad is that?!
