Research: Nikon, Gakken Kenkyusha & Hokkoku
Logo Histories' Research Archive Issue 24
In Issue 24 of Logo Histories’ Research Archive I have picked out assets from Yusaku Kamekura’s brand identity for Japanese company Nikon designed in 1988. Also, symbols for Gakken Kenkyusha’s range of children’s pencils and Hokkoku’s 1989 brand identity designed by Shigeo Sato & Kazunari Nishida.
Research Archive is a look at some of the materials I’ve picked up to write Logo Histories. If you’d like to support this project and access our Logo Histories archive which now includes 100+ stories of logo design of the past (the biggest of its kind) (Free previews here) as well as receiving new stories straight to you inbox, click the button below and upgrade to paid.
