China’s long march to the Modern Age has swiftly gathered pace. Everything that happens in China has a knock-on effect and thus a greater significance for our world than may appear to be the case at the time. The accelerating pace of economic growth has also proved a challenge for Chinese graphic designers and inspired them to reach unimagined heights that have an impact far beyond the Asian world. However, despite the advancing internationalization we have largely remained foreign to each other. It is this foreignness that today both fascinates and interests us, as two great cultural nations. German and Chinese graphic designers have come to the conclusion that a mutual influence and constant encounters will produce something new.
