Japan Pulp & Paper Company Limited commenced usage of the Group's new OVOL brand from October 2017.
Treasuring the values of integrity, fairness and harmony, the Japan Pulp & Paper Group will strive to change, challenge and create as it works as one towards the creation of a better future for society and the environment under this new OVOL brand.
The two Os in the OVOL logo symbolize the global expansion of the Japan Pulp & Paper Group. The shape of the striking logo is not only reminiscent of a celestial orbit and ovals, but the repetition within the letter O represents a smooth and never ending continuity, nature and familiarity, as well as the direction of the Japan Pulp & Paper Group in its global expansion, and these are conveyed in a unique way that is both visual and almost aural. The letters of the logo include the word “VOL”, which conveys an image of flying in languages with a Latin origin such as French, and the four letters of “OVOL” represent both “the power to fly into the future” and the possibilities of a story’s new beginning.
The gray used in the logo has a high affinity with other colors and is also a harmonizing color that enhances any surrounding colors. As gray is a blend of all colors, it represents the cooperative ability to bring out the best in, and bring together, others. Gray also symbolizes the way of the Japan Pulp & Paper Group, which transcends time and is sought out for its significance.
