This logo was designed for a Japanese restaurant located in Atlanta, GA.
For this hip and happening place in midtown Atlanta,
the owners of the restaurant wanted a logo that was simple but festive,
as the name "Matsuri" means "festival" in Japanese.
And the festiveness suited a young and vibrant area in midtown Atlanta.
I created a little character who looks to be juggling the words
"Matsuri" in Japanese characters,
used a red circle to represent the Japanese flag,
and the arms of the juggler that looks like Japanese brush strokes is an added bonus.
