Calligraphy meets Computer graphics

A contracting firm in Yamashina, Kyoto that was established 35 years ago.
We created a logo consisting of two circles below the roof of the house in which it is located.

In Japan, the word en "circle" is a homophone of the word en “bond, link, connection”, and thus the two words inspire mental associations between one another. The two circles below the roof express the “bond, link, connection” between the contracting firm, its operator, and the people who live there.

We used computer graphics to process the striking lines of the orthodox Japanese calligraphy written by the calligrapher Hina Takagi.

She was born to family of calligraphy, learned it from just three years old.
So she can hand-drawn lines has a rich feeling.
Our computer processing, the line is carefully organized, and available everywhere.
I use the hand work to produce the design as much as possible.
Because the hand work includes a rich emotion.
