Visual identity for the creative studio

Kamimura, the predecessor of Kamimura & Co. Inc. was established with the aim of contributing to progress any things and activities by the technology of design and typography.

In particular, what we emphasize is the technology of typography: exploring communication methods using letters. Humans have been working on about the big influence of each small letter brings for a long time since ancient times. Due to the rapid development of technology and the rise of digital media, today's people live surrounded by a large number of letters unprecedented in the past. In this era, typography works as a very useful "tool" to create new value.


特に私たちが重視しているのは、文字を用いたコミュニケーション方法の探求、“タイポグラフィ” の技術です。小さな文字ひとつひとつがもたらす大きな影響について、人類は古くから現代まで取り組み続けてきました。技術の急速な発展やデジタルメディアの台頭によって、今日の私たちは過去に例がないほど大量の文字に囲まれて生活しています。このような時代において、タイポグラフィは新たな価値を生み出す非常に有用な “ツール” として機能します。

Our logotype doesn’t have a specific shape. It’s always optimized to readable form like people change their clothes according to their location and circumstances. Our identity is not a fixed shape but “search for readability”.
私たちのロゴタイプは特定の形を持っていません。人々が場所や状況に応じて装いを変えるように、このロゴタイプも常に読みやすい形に最適化されます。私たちのアイデンティティは固定された形状ではなく “読みやすさの探求” です。

There are still many areas where typography is underdeveloped. We expect there is huge potential for typography on digital media. In the near future, we would read digital media like paper books.
