Tokyo: design mistake Ginkgo badge
The original badge produced by the Tokyo Bureau of Sewerage, top, and the redesigned version.
Tokyo metropolitan government's Sewage Bureau spent about 34 million yen having a new set of badges made for staff uniforms after a problem was found with the logo on an original batch of 20,000. The new uniforms were ordered during the spring, after the design got a go-ahead from managers. However, it was noticed later that the uniforms' silicone badges, which bear the Tokyo Metropolitan Government's Ginkgo leaf crest and office name, also contained a small wavy blue line, designed to represent cleaning water. This was deemed a violation of the bureau's basic design manual, and new badges were subsequently ordered at a total cost of 34 million yen.
