Introducing the Akita Convention and Visitors Bureau New Symbol Mark
The design of our new symbol mark belongs to the Art Director Katsumi Asaba, who was also a member of the executive committee for the very successful 20th Japan Inter-Design Forumﾕ98 in Akita.
Together with our motto ﾕAkita opens and brings our hearts together ﾕ we would like the symbol mark to become familiar to everyone through our activities introducing and promoting Akita.
ConceptThe eternal keynote for Akita is the ism of the three beauties: ﾕBeautiful people, beautiful sake, beautiful forestsﾕ . These three are united in the Akita Convention and Visitors Bureau new symbol mark. Rich natural environment stands for the beautiful forests; outstanding quality rice, sake and water-for the beautiful sake; kind and beautiful people-for beautiful people. Slowly turning circle in the middle of the
symbol mark shows the steady advancement towards the future.
