The lettering is inspired by the majestic soaring dragons in the vast sky. 'Dragon' as the main word, made in a gracefully curved grid that holds bold letters, reflecting the grandeur of mythical creatures like dragons. Details are added to evoke the mesmerizing dance of dragons against the open sky.
While the humble yet mighty word 'soar', is represented by a sweeping, elongated swoosh that wraps around the letters. This element mimics the fluid and enchanting movements of a dragon's body.
