As a Japanese identity designer, how it is possible not to be attracted by Kamon?

If you have been traveled Japan or have seen movies of Samurai, you might have noticed simple and modern look symbols. That is Kamon, Japanese traditional symbols to identify individuals or families. Kamon is written 家紋 in kanji, and 家[ka] means “family” and 紋[mon] means “symbol”, “mark”, or “motif”.
