We've seen plenty of ingenious logo reimaginings, with famous symbols rendered in retro, handwritten, horror, and many more aesthetics. But this might just be the most adorable project yet.

The official behance Instagram account has highlighted the work of a Vietnamese artist who has delightfully rendered various characters from the world of Hayao Miyazaki as famous logos. (Looking for design inspiration? Check out our guide on how to design a logo.)

Spirited Away's Kaonashi (or No Face) is perfect as the three Adidas stripes, while Ponyo makes for an especially cute Snapchat ghost. Meanwhile, fire demon Calcifer from Howl's Moving Castle was born to portray the Tinder flame. And Kiki (of Kiki's Delivery Service Fame) makes for a much cuter Wendy's logo than the company's recent emo reimagining.

The designs by Duong Nguyn are going down a storm online. "What an incredibly cool idea!" One Instagram user comments, while another adds, "Fascinating thought process and superb execution."
