Chengyu is a type of Chinese idiomatic expression that consists of four characters. These expressions reflect the values, beliefs, and wisdom of Chinese culture and are used in various contexts, such as literature, art, business, and everyday conversation. They are widely used in the Chinese language and culture to convey complex or abstract concepts in a concise and memorable way. The purpose of this project is to redesign a series of visual expressions for Chengyu, providing them with a fresh visual identity. This innovation aims to highlight the meaning and unique expression of select Chengyu.
