I was nervous until I met Mr. Watanabe, but I was very aware of the story, and I was very pleased with the various questions, so I would like to share with you this occasion.

Origin of the brand name of the Tacoma Fuji Record (Takcomakh Giphor)

First of all, the name "Takomafuji" was named after Watanabe, who was a university student when he studied in the United States, where a famous mountain named "Mount Trenia" (also known as "Tacomafuji") was located nearby, and was given a brand name from there.

Tacoma of Tacoma Fujji was called 'Tacoma '(Tacoma), and the Japanese and Japanese descendants of Japanese descendants who were later emigration from Japan came to be called 'Takoma Fuji' because of their resemblance to Mt. Fuji.

And by the way, I heard about my brand name, and I said, "No, no, no, no." (Laughter)
It is a naming of Watanabe, who cheres and cherles philings and norri.

In addition, I would like to ask you a question about the meaning of brandrogo and the meaning of a girl in the logo, like the one depicted in the face, " it's not particularly meaningful.And I don't know, I don't know. " (Laughter)

The logo design was commissioned by the painter Tomo GOKIDA, and it is a symbol of the brand, which is also painted on T-shirts and other goods.



History of the Tacomafu Giphonig

After graduating from college, he worked for a travel agency, and later joined Victor Entertainment.As a visual planner, I was in charge of production of CD jackets and commercial items.

Mr. Watanabe is not designing a design, but is in charge of offering art work to artists, such as external art directors, illustrators, photographers, and so on, so that he will meet with Mr. Tomoo GOKIDA and Mr. Ukai, who would later receive the logo and artwork of the Tacomafu Giphonogram.

"I always liked to make something that the creators really like," and "I've always liked T-shirts," in 2008, and now it's time to come up with a taco-like tag.


Tomohisa GOKIDA

The brandrogo of the Takcomakji Giphili, and the other various art work by Tomohisa Gokida.
It is said that Tomo GOKIDA walks along with him in the Victor age together, and he has a good relationship with him as well as business as well as business.However, the Gokida clan was older than the Watanabe clan, and it was about 100 million yen to paint a thud and a picture, so I was told that I would not be in touch with him.


Finally.

A variety of attractions, from art to pun, to a variety of fascinating charms.Through this event, I was able to talk to Mr. Watanabe directly, and I rediscovered that the free atmosphere and stance of freedom in the rough are making Takarov's records a funny brand."It is strange that I will continue to sell even if I become a grandpa."As a fan, I would like to continue to be a popular brand with a 20-year, 30-year, 30-year-long, 10-year-old fan.
