Yuna and Chris have made a great team for years now excelling in their school, work, and personal lives. But what does Mustenso have to do with us?
Mustenso is simply a conjunction between the english word “must” and the Japanese word “enso,” often represented in Japanese calligraphy as a circle. Some say it symbolizes the moment when the mind is free to simply let the body/spirit create. The more common definition is mainly just a reference to karma and how “what goes around comes around” – (our main inspiration for the logo). So, must-enso is a combination of creativity and good will which is something we both have a passion for.
