Calling for family crests (KAMON), freely designed by modern creators
「現代創作者設計之自由創作家紋(KAMON、家徽)徵選」

Would you like give Japanese traditional “KAMON” symbols a modern upgrade?
Loftwork.com is looking for freely conceived designs of “KAMON” symbol again this year.

What’s KAMON?

KAMON originated in the Heian period, and are symbols used to represent one’s familial lineage and social status.
Majority of KAMON designs feature some combination of deformed geometric shapes, plants, animals, and other concrete motifs, like tools, into a simple symbolic mark. It is said that there are over 5116 symbols, 241 types, just in the country.

您想不想將日本的傳統象徵「家紋」升級為現代風呢?
Loftwork.com今年再次徵選自由構思設計的「KAMON」。

What’s KAMON?

家紋起源於平安時代,自古以來就是用以代表自己家族譜系、門第等的象徵。
家紋樣式的設計主要是將幾何圖案、植物、動物以及工具等具體的圖案變形組合,並且統整為簡單的象徵標誌。據說光是日本國內就有超過241種、5116個家紋。

From the roof tiles of a Samurai residence, tools, furniture, to articles of clothing.
KAMON was used in a variety of places and things to show owner’s familial lineage.

從武家宅邸的瓦、門扇或家具到和服外掛等服裝。
家紋象徵擁有者的門第,因此被用在各種場所或物品上。

We are seeking KAMON designs arising from the modern lifestyle.

Last year, over 50 pieces of unique KAMON designs were submitted for this project.
We are offering a variety of prizes this time around!

We look forward to unique, interesting KAMON designs that may survive 100 years.

不拘國籍或身分、任何人都能自由設計的KAMON呢?
