Award sponsored by Arnold Street Media


OKI Donut Shop

The OKI Donut Shop logo introduces traditional Okinawan pastries to the North American coffee and pastry market with a design that exudes happiness and approachability. It blends Japanese and Okinawan cultures, using a round logo resembling the Japanese flag and a smiling donut to convey joy. The "OKI" acronym, containing "OK," adds positivity. The red and white colors signify vitality and purity. This versatile design extends to packaging, wrapping, stamps, menus, and social media to create a cohesive in-store and out-store experience.
