Experience Japan Pictograms

Experience Japan Pictograms are a novel set of visual symbols developed by creative director Daigo Daikoku for people of all cultures and ages to enhance their tourism experience in Japan. And whether you run a restaurant, are building an app or putting together a guidebook, the pictograms are free and available to download for any use, even commercial. You can even change the color as you wish.”

Just to show you options beyond changing colors, it is possible to combine different elements from Experience Japan Pictograms in Illustrator or Inkscape (free). Above, I created a site header for cafebedouin.org combining the dunes of L_TOTTIORI-SATYU.svg with a camel I traced from an image in Illustrator, and then combined the camel with the coffee icon in F_KISSATKEN.svg. Fairly easy to do. Of course, I’m not a big fan of unnecessary images on my site. However, the camel coffee cup might be a good logo of sorts. Anyway, I could see quite a few possibilities for using these pictograms in headers for a site, promotional materials or what have you.
