We have launched the “TAKE PHYSICAL CONDITIONING GYM”, produced by the top Japanese race jockey, Yutaka Take, in KYOTO. While conditioning gyms are still very rare in Japan, this gym’s visual communication strategy has been designed to pioneer this new market.
Our task was to design a conditioning gym based on physical therapy, which should not be categorized as a gym nor a hospital but as a brand new “Third Category”. We decided to symbolize elastic muscles in the logo, as a principle of physical therapy is maximizing the excursions. The two muscles represent the letter “t”, which is the first initial of the brand name, as well as a resemblance to the Red Cross. This muscle lattice pattern is used in the interior, and it is a reinterpretation of the traditional architectural design from the authentic city of Kyoto.
