Original LDP Logo Design by Tokyo Olympic Artist

The 2020 Tokyo Olympic emblem designer has completed a new original logo for the LDP commissioned by the Abe Administration.

The embattled graphic designer Kenjiro Sano has been defending plagiarism allegations for his Tokyo Olympic logo and more recently for the Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Gardens logo, but says his latest work displays complete authenticity.

Critics have claimed the new LDP logo is a blatant forgery and evokes feelings of past militarism, however the government has denied the charges saying it is truly representative of the current government’s ideologies.

“We’re proud of this original piece of artwork that symbolizes the Abe Administration yet is strongly influenced by elements connected to the past including Shinzo Abe’s grandfather,” a member of Sano’s team said.
