Our brand
At Canon we believe in the power of image: the power to communicate quickly and easily, to convey the slightest of subtleties, to elicit the strongest emotions and to simplify the most complex of tasks.

We bring our passion for image to life by aligning the Canon brand with a wide range of high profile activities, from advertising campaigns such as the recent corporate ‘We Speak Image’ campaign to key cultural and sporting sponsorships, and European events and exhibitions.

Our brand platform ‘You Can’ captures the essence of the Canon brand and is designed to inspire our customers to explore their creativity and be empowered by our technologies. With Canon – You Can

Through official sponsorships in sport such as the UEFA Super Cup™ and MTN Africa Cup of Nations football tournaments, and environmental activities such as our support for WWF, Canon expresses a passion for the power of image and a commitment to our Japanese corporate philosophy of Kyosei which means ‘living and working together for the common good’.
