Red and yellow/gold. Colors of the Chinese "Forbidden City".
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
The name "Zhongmen" (written “中门”）means "center gate" in Mandarin Chinese and is an allusion to the center gate of the Meridian Wall at the Forbidden City, which only the Emperor himself was allowed to pass through for centuries except for special occasions.
Would like to potentially incorporate this meaning and/or possibly the Chinese characters into the logo. Could also explore concepts with the letters "Z" and "G".
There is a way to create the word Zhongmen incorporating the characters instead of the "o" and "n". Like this: "Zh中ngme门". This might be interesting if can look professional and not gimmicky.
