    In the Chinesized weather forecast system, designer Yu ZHAO made use of the 3 pathways, Chinese pictograph characters, Chinese traditional patterns and Chinese calligraphy, to create a weather forecast system with the essence of Chinese culture. This system includes the weather forecast signs, the visual identity and the application for different media.

Also, the book offers an example about visual experiment of Chinesization in graphic design field. Read Less
