International Yo-Yo Federation Logo

The yo-yo world is full of intrigue!

A lot of drama happened around the World Yo-Yo Contest, which has been held in Orlando, Florida for over a decade. Several international groups have matured to the point that they wanted to host the contest and start moving it around each year, which turned into a bitter fight over the contest’s direction.

Hiro spearheaded the formation of the new International Yo-Yo Federation, collaborating with yo-yo community leaders from around the world. He brought me up to date while I was in Japan, and I started sketching logo ideas for the proposed organization.

Ultimately, a deal was struck and the World Yo-Yo Contest merged with the IYYF, leading to a new era for international yo-yo contests. My design was adopted for the group’s logo, which can be seen at their website, www.IYYF.org.
