Views of China – Editorial Design

In addition to the animated shortfilm »Views of China« this book brakes down the entire process from research to the final animations. It packs six months of work in China into a collection of thoughts, ideas and history. 

The book consists of an animation history breakdown with focus on China and loops in animation. Insights into Chinese architecture, culture, religion, painting, language and harmony of humans and nature. And a detailed description of the thought process behind each animation and the entire project.


The first part is printed in black and red on white paper.

The photos were also an important part of the project. The concept was mainly to pay homage to Ai Weiwei and his »Dropping a Han Dynasty Urn«.

The book's cover is a new interpretation of a Chinese Chop (seal). It consists of the abstracted symbols of »Chris« that I received at Tongji University.
