Yang Liu

Yang Liu is a Chinese-born, German-raised graphic designer. She translated the nuances of her cultural identities into a fantastic project called Ost trifft West (East Meets West), which is a humorous and iconographic look at the differences between German and Chinese cultures. (Above, clockwise from top left: differences in perceptions of time, the status of the boss in the work place, superstitious beliefs, and behavior at parties). I posted an interview with Yang over at Notcot.com and hope you will go and check it and the many photos of Yang's work out!
