ABOUT OUR LOGO
Our logo design not only represents our brand, it is also an example of how our storytelling process affects every aspect of what we do creatively.
“Nimble” represents our ability to move through projects with ease; and to quickly understand and devise the optimal solutions for every challenge our clients presents to us.
The Dragon in our logo represents the “S” in Studios. In East Asian culture, the dragon symbolizes strength, power and good luck.
The “ND” represents both Nimble Dragon and the company founder’s initials whose full name means strength or guiding force in the Philippine language, Tagalog. When read backwards in Hebrew, the “ND” reads as Koach (pron. Ko’-akh), which means strength and power.
The circle symbolizes completeness, unity and perfection. Every skill we have learned in each aspect of media in the last three decades have come full circle to a complete, unified offering of complementary services.
