The mission of the Association for Conservation of National Treasures (ACNT) is to improve and popularize the repair and restoration techniques and to contribute to the development of these techniques in Japan, by improving repair and restoration techniques for the National Treasure and Cultural Properties, exchanging associated knowledge, and by promoting collaboration and cooperation among the members, domestic and foreign workshops.
For the entire tone and atmosphere, we used the motif of "Rising Sun," which is the symbol in the Japanese national flag, to sublime the image of "National Treasures". The dusky-red color is used to emphasize the "tradition," and the overlapping tweezers express "precise work" and "modernity." The letters "The Association for Conservation of National Treasures" and the abbreviation "ACNT" are placed beside it so that even the foreigners can easily recognize it.
