Japan has a strong history and visual culture which is widely spread around the world. Icons such as the Koi fish, Kimono or the noble woman are instantly recognisable as being Japanese.

New York designer Christopher Dina designed these lovely Japanese symbols for the “Japan Day” at the Central park 2012. The icons above represent Japanese arts and crafts, fashion, pop culture, music and more.

I love the simplicity of these Japanese symbols, I also like the main image where all symbols are places into central park surrounded by trees and the city buildings.

If I would live in New York I would definitely check out the event and get stuck into all the activities. via designboom
