Our task as a group was to create a more welcoming environment for customers, by designing a new wall design in the interior for the clinic. We also developed posters that will attract new potential customers as well as brochures and a new design for their social media.
Our design focussed on appealing to a multicultural audience, with an emphasis on those with a Chinese background. The client indicated that a large proportion of their customer base are of Chinese ancestry.
The result of the work is a combination of Chinese symbolism and artistry, carefully ensuring not to alienate potential customers from other cultural backgrounds. Our philosophy is to welcome all indiscriminately to the community.
Through our visual language we hope to convey strong meaning and messages. The mountains and Koi fish symbolises longevity, the cranes as blessings and the bamboo representative of happiness and good health. We have utilised a soft and warm tone inspired by traditional Chinese ink paintings.
