New Logos of Marunouchi Building and Shin-Marunouchi Building Released

I’d like to congratulate the 20th and 15th anniversaries of Marunouchi building and Shin-Marunouchi building of Mitsubishi Estate. We, TPOD, have been taking part in the ANNIVERSARY RENEWAL project of the buildings in several ways. One of the projects, the new logo for the commercial zone of the Marunouchi Building and Shin-Marunouchi Building has been unveiled.

I was the producer myself and Mr. Motoki Koitabashi, Akaoni Co. Ltd. and I worked on the concept makeup. Mr. Koitabashi designed it and Mr. Noriaki Yashima, Yashima Design Office Co. Ltd. was in charge of fitting design.

Design Concept:

  • Something to be recognized easily by everyone as well as unforgettable
  • Humorous and characteristic
  • Possessing both factors of tradition and innovation


The new logo was created based on the Japanese form of “丸ビル” and “新丸ビル” which were the nicknames of the buildings. Other projects that TPOD has been involved with will be also released to the public one after another toward next spring. We’re really looking forward to the release too.
