Tonbo is the Japanese word for dragonfly.
Characteristics of the dragonfly inspire the Tonbo Digital team every day.
The dragonfly is an insect infused with symbolism in many cultures all over the world. The symbolism in Japanese and Chinese culture resonates particularly with our team.
The Dragonfly in Asian Culture
According to the Dragonfly Site, “To the Japanese, the dragonfly symbolizes summer and autumn and is admired and respected such that the Samurai used it as a symbol of power, agility and best of all, Victory.” We seek victory in all our programs with our clients.
“In China, people associate the dragonfly with prosperity, harmony and as a good luck charm.” We aspire to be clients’ good luck charm, and most importantly deliver prosperity.
Agility and Speed
The dragonfly’s agile flight and its ability to move in all six directions exude a sense of power and poise – something that comes only with age and maturity.
The dragonfly can move at an amazing 45 miles an hour, hover like a helicopter fly backwards like a hummingbird, fly straight up, down and on either side.
Our marketing products are developed to give us the ability to move quickly, yet change direction in response to market opportunities.
The awe inspiring aspect is how the dragonfly accomplishes its objectives with utmost simplicity and effectiveness.
What is mind blowing is the fact that it is so nimble and fast while flapping its wings a mere 30 times a minute while mosquitoes and houseflies need to flap their wings 600 and 1000 times a minute respectively. The best part is that the dragonfly does it with elegance and grace that can be compared to a veteran ballet dancer. If this is not a brazen, lazy, overkill in terms of display of raw power, what is?
We aspire on clients’ behalf to execute with brazen, lazy overkill of power!
