Jerraine Harukawa (ジャッレイン春川) is the official (and feminine) mascot character of the Project JeForceX brand. Being deeply inspired by the beauty of the Culture Japan brand as well as its mascot character Mirai Suenaga, we agree with many thinkers and doers that it is important to have a humanoid visual representative of the Project JeForceX brand aside from the official trademark.

Early Stage Concept

The Mascot Character (F) project started off as an abstract idea of creating a feminine humanoid visual representative. The idea was first conceived in the year 2010 having been deeply inspired by the beauty coupled with the limitless possibilities of Mirai Suenaga, the official mascot character of the Culture Japan brand.

The concept of this project is to create a young female character with the 'kawaii' look and feel as well as of a 'date-able' and 'marriage-able' age. The character will come with a cheerful and optimistic personality to encourage followers to smile and think on the brighter side regardless of their given situation in life.

As time passes by, the character design changed over time and arrived at this finalized outcome. The character's clothes and accessories from head to toe are deeply inspired by the Sailor Uniform (Seifuku) design, following up with the Absolute Region (Zettai Ryouiki) fashion, and blended with a mix of modern day smart formal fashion.

The color mix of red, white, black, and milk tea brown as shown on the clothes and accessories represents the primary, secondary, and tertiary colors used by the Project JeForceX brand. The hexagon shapes and chevrons represent the structured yet well-diversified mission, vision, and core values of the brand.
