Logo design CompetitionUnveiling the new Official logo

Also, the “NISEKO GRAVEL Logo Design Competition” which was held from March 11 to 31, 2022, we had more than 100 entries, the official logo has been chosen to Huy Pham´s work (Hokkaido).

Huy Pham´s comment;
I choose mount Yotei as the representative element of the Niseko area natural beauty, and the bicycle’s tire to represent the
gravel sport aspect.
The logo focuses on composition for impact. Minimum use of features to ensure the recognizability across all media
The logo will be used in various places to represent NISEKO GRAVEL. Thank you very much to everyone who applied!
