Design Concept

The Pearl Studio logo portrays the spirit of ancient philosophy from the East working in harmony with modern technique from the West. While the symbolism of the hand, the pearl, and the halo are deeply rooted from the East; the modern, Western treatment of the logo completes the company’s DNA.

The hand is cradling and offering a precious bright pearl, borrowing the meaning from an old Chinese phrase “bright pearl in the palm” . This is the visualisation of Pearl Studio producing films with exceptional creativity, craftsmanship; and its belief in bringing joy to families; offering this treasure from the Orient to billions across the world.

The formation of the hand in one dynamic single stroke symbolises Pearl Studio’s original creation process from start to the end; while the use of the halo, not only does it form the “P” for Pearl, it also celebrates harmony and completeness.
