Why

Why did JARCC select the logo that they have, and what is the meaning behind it?

The concept was designed by Domoto Brand and was inspired by carved Japanese inkan/hanko seals which originated as a symbol of identification and authority. A circular version of this seal was utilized, recognizing the unique commonality behind the historical use of the hanko, and the current use of an organization’s brand identity/logo. In this logo, the sun emerges behind two overlapping peaks representing the evolving Japanese-American experience in Colorado. The peaks also represent the convergence of young and old generations coming together. The rays of the sun represent a diverse spectrum of cultural programming and an optimistic future.
