Cephalus feels with joy the kindly gales,
His new allies unfurl the swelling sails;
Steady their course, they cleave the yielding main,
And, with a wish, th’ intended harbour gain.
JKD Collective, a Tokyo based creative studio has undertaken branding and visual design for Japan’s largest jazz festival, Tokyo Jazz, teaming up with Oryel, a design studio run by Art Director Koichi Inoue.
The key visual is a collage of typographies such as kanji, katakana and the alphabet mixed in with a variety of jazz-related motifs and gives a sense of the sophistication of present day Tokyo.
The festival took place on September 6th, 7th and 8th in 2014 at the Tokyo International Forum and at the Cotton Club.2 hearts
A Bull finding a lion’s cub asleep gored him to death with his horns. The Lioness came up, and bitterly lamented the death of her whelp. A wild-boar Hunter, seeing her distress, stood at a distance and said to her, “Think how many men there are who have reason to lament the loss of their children, whose deaths have been caused by you.”
