XIAO BAI (舒张子)
Developing a logo and image for a large scale entertainment is a difficult process. The logo needs to emote the feeling of the show in a single glance, at the same time being immediately distinctive, and iconic in nature. The logo also needs to address the functional and logistical requirements of being able to scale proportionally in size from business cards to billboards, and for vertical format advertising in papers to horizontal format advertising in TV and other print.
Designed by renowned Ningbo artist, Xiao Bai (舒张子), the logo skillfully blends Chinese and English together is a symbolic symbol that represents Ancient China with and evocative and strong Western appeal.
