Embedding Space BD's philosophy on the importance of people into our logo

Space BD

Space BD's new company logo is formed by putting the Japanese character (Kanji) for "People" three times.
This is to emphasize our strong belief that it is the people that supports our business.

The three characters for "people" represent "Customers", "Business partners", and ourselves, Space BD.
The logo represents the three groups of people coming together to rise up, up and beyond.

The bright red colour of the logo is a traditional colour in Japan, which represents the feeling when thinking of someone.

Space BD is a company that continues to challenge Space with a burning passion and with people as our assets.
The logo serves to remind us of our philosophy.
