About the OIST 10th Anniversary Logo
Design proposals were solicited from the university community to raise awareness of the 10th anniversary and to give members a chance to show their creativity. After a rigorous evaluation of 12 submissions, Kaori Serakaki’s design was selected.
About the design concept
The line bouncing upward from the OIST logo represents growth, development, evolution, and future prosperity, representing OIST's growth to date and its future as it celebrates its 10th anniversary.
The arc line in the center represents a "bridge." OIST is a bridge that connects Japan to the world, the past and the future, discovery and impact, academia with industry, and government and community.
About the designer
Kaori Serakaki is the proud logo designer, "I was born and raised in Onna Village, where OIST is located. I work at OIST as a graphic designer and have witnessed the brilliance of researchers from around the world. I also have been impressed by how many people have supported the university. I am delighted to be able to give form to the thoughts and feelings of these people in designing the OIST 10th anniversary logo."
