East Meets West Infographics

Graphic designer Yang Liu created a poignant and amusing collection of images juxtaposing German and Chinese cultural identity and perceptions. It’s one of most insightful East meets West summations that I’ve seen in a while.

She nails everything from behavior in line to how the elderly live their lives.

Yang was born in China and raised in Germany. She lives in Berlin and has published a book of the collected images, available for sale on her website.

In a 2007 interview with Notcot.com, she spoke more about her project and how it was received by both sides of the cultural divide.

A K-drama website has revived her infographics, sharing stand-out images from the series.
