Designer Yang Liu Illustrates the Differences Between Eastern and Western Cultures

Designer Yang Liu has created a collection of fascinating visual references highlighting the difference between east and west.

Are you one of those people who find other cultures to be immensely fascinating? If you are, you’ll be super interested to know that designer Yang Liu has created a whole bunch of cool infographics to handily explain the key differences between how many common situations and expressions can change depending on whether you’re in the US or China.

Created in a minimalistic style with blue denoting the west and red indicating the east, Yang Liu’s designs quickly illustrate the differences between the cultures and people of each respective region. Though it’s no surprise to find out that we approach people and situations differently depending on where we are born and live our lives, it is amazing to see just how many examples there are of these differences between east and west.

Naturally, we’ve selected some of our favorites and included them for your perusal below, however, if you’d like to see the full collection, you can find them here. Conversely, we’ve linked to the designer’s entire catalog of work on her name above, if you’d like to see some of the other cool things she’s come up with.
