Why blog about Chinese design?
Simply becuase there are very few good quality English language Chinese design blogs out there.
I am a young designer who lived in Beijing for 4 years, and has recently relocated to Shanghai, and am fascinated about a new era of design from the East, particularly China.
Of course, there are other Chinese design blogs, but they have alternative agendas, like promoting their company or work, or they are sporadically updated and have little decent content.
‘Made in China’ will soon mean created in China.
This blog hopes to chronicle that.
I will also pick up things which are not made in China, but made for China, and see the different design responses to China and its consumers.
I am Elliot, a designer from just outside London and graduated from Architecture at the University of Sheffield in 2008. I have been living in Beijing ever since then and love it. Get in touch with me – elliot [at] eightsix.co
