Numbers within Hearts
Graphic Design, Poster, Website
A series of posters and a website about numbers represent different meanings within different cultures.
In our school, students with different cultural backgrounds have different understandings of numbers. The meanings of numbers could be totally different or even opposite in different countries. For example, “666” represents “evil” in the west but means “awesome” in China. “555” means “laughing” in Thailand but “crying” in China.
I designed a website and a series of posters visualizing the meanings of numbers. I posted them on the campus of California College of the Arts to raise an interesting conversation between students with different backgrounds and explore the stories within different cultures.
You can also interact on the website and read the story behind each number.
