Chiwi

UNIVERSITY - FINAL PROJECT

Following a design research project into retro culture revival and nostalgia in design, I had discovered the common positive responses that these design techniques and aesthetics evoke. 

My general design brief after this research was, “A visual exploration and representation of Chinese New Zealand history”. The objective being to challenge the perceived stereotypes apparent in society; to provide a visual history that celebrates the Chinese in NZ history that is relatable to all New Zealanders.

Chiwi revealed the irony of New Zealand’s limited view of its multicultural history, using recognized cultural icons to familiarize ‘the other’.
