I love it!
This is Chinese characters, I am a Chinese, from Chinese characters, the stroke is not enough balance. There are a lot of Chinese characters culture, welcome studies
Take it easy, @sky
I know that I am very far from understanding the depth of Chinese writing, however this is my reinterpretation of the 螺鈿 kanji, with the sole function of representing a Japanese company.
This work was not meant to offend anyone or any culture.
Your input about it, as a Chinese is very welcome. :)
@Breno Bitencourt I don't think @sky took offense to it, but was just stating that there doesn't seem to be enough stroke balance within the characters. My Japanese girlfriend took a look at it, even before sky had said something, and said the same - she said as a native speaker, the typography would come across as a bit unsophisticated. As westerners we aren't quite as in-tune with the nuances of Asian writing systems. It can be difficult sometimes!
Agree with you, @Laura :)
It's my first attempt to work with an Asian writing system, so I think is normal had some difficult with it. I've made three logo proposals, you can see it attached, I think this one is the most unsophisticated, a try to make something different. Let's see what client think about it. I'll keep showing here the progress.

Another typography option for this project, I think it looks more 'traditional', hope it's legible. :D
