A picture speaks a thousand (Chinese) words

Irwin Hau | Creative Inspiration

As web designers, we draw from design inspirations across the board – from user interface design to typography combinations. As a creative challenge internally, our latest inspiration piece – Chinese Character Illustrations, came about after learning that certain English words are sometimes made up of two or three Chinese characters combined. This discovery gave us the thought “what would these characters/words broken down look like literally”.

Our favourites are the Bag Rat and Three Running Dogs + Wind. Which ones are yours?   autumn castle cropland follow forest giraffe kangaroo people potato pregnant-woman respect-parents rest shape storm stuck tomorrow young-plant
