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. The balance of the Ying & Yang is same as the generation of weather, the balance of the warm air mass and cold air mass. This is why we use this modern system as a platform to discover how to use traditional graphics in the global context. Also, the book offers an example about visual experiment of Chinesization in graphic design field. Read Less
