Okamura Corporation Fukuoka Office Logo Competition

At Kyushu University Faculty of Design, we are working in cooperation with Okamura Corporation towards achieving the SDGs goals.
Okamura Corporation will reopen its new laboratory office (Note 1), as well as a co-creation space (Note 2), in Hakata, Fukuoka City, and has invited the students of Kyushu University to design the logos for both facilities.
We are looking for new designs.

(Note 1)
The laboratory office is an office to test creative work styles. Its purpose is, based on various creative working styles, to test out ways to enhance the abilities of both employees and organizations not just with the latest office furniture, but through work system reform, diversity promotion, and IT tools, and to contribute to society by facilitating the improvement of communication and proposal capabilities.

(Note 2)
Since 2015, the Okamura Corportation has been running the “Work Mill” in Tokyo, Nagoya, and Osaka, and regularly holds co-creation events and seminars to think about the meaning of work with stakeholders both inside and outside the company. The Okamura Corporation is reforming the way its employees work and the way they work with customers with the co-creation of those both inside and outside the company.

You can find information about the three co-creation spaces in Japan here:
Tokyo: Open Innovation Biotope “Sea”
Nagoya: Open Innovation Biotope “Cue”
