Ken Tanabe’s lovingday.org celebrates the spirit of perseverance and promotes multicultural awareness.
The sun loves Ken Tanabe. Or maybe it’s the other way around. “Man I have to say it feels so good to be out here right now. I’ve got my Vitamin D for the week, “ he says and flashes a toothy grin afterward. Ken pushes out his chest and the LovingDay logo gleams brightly, like it’s where he holds all his power. “The logo has a heart surrounded by a shield. The shield represents law, protection. The inner part, the heart, represents love and the Loving decision.” The multi-talented designer of Belgian-Japanese descent has flexed his creative muscle throughout the design industry in a variety of roles. As founder of lovingday.org, however, he now plays a much more pivotal role that transcends his industry niche—that of educator.
