Nippon Cargo Airlines Logo

The logo is distinguished by a massive acronym formed from “Nippon Cargo Airlines.” The initial letters of each word are ultra-bold, cobalt blue, rounded by natural flowing shapes. The letters “C” and “A” are connected as if holding hands. Below them is the full name of the cargo airline. This name is much smaller in size, colored dark gray, and typed with a combination of upper and lower case letters. The text is aligned on both sides of the top line. The letters are predominantly rounded, with the exception of “N,” “i,” and “l.”

Ultra-bold cobalt blue initials create a sense of reliability and authority as if to emphasize the company’s leading role in the air cargo sector. The joined “C” and “A” subtly hint at unity or cooperation, perhaps within the company or with its partners. The dark gray text of the full name provides contrast to highlight the acronym, and the combination of upper and lower case letters brings visual variety. The justification of the text is in keeping with the meticulous attention to detail that is associated with freight logistics.
