CAS Hanwei

The Hanwei Logo

With the purchase of C.A.S. Iberia, Inc by Paul Chen in the summer of 2006 a new collaboration was formed; CAS Hanwei, Inc. To commemorate this event it was decided a logo would be created jointly by the team of artists based in China and the United States. The result is the epitome of East meets West.

The outer portion of the logo bearing the CAS Hanwei name is a traditional European belt crest, symbolizing the strong ties to the medieval European west which provides inspiration for our work. The belt terminates in a double "V" pattern, a symbol closely tied to prosperity in the east.

The Chinese dragon at center is a powerful symbol of good fortune. His long whiskers represent an older dragon and, consequently, his great wisdom. The four arms form a square of stability. The dragon bears a classic symbol of western medieval arms in his mouth; a single hand broad sword.
