Chinese aesthetic tastes are very different from Western tastes, and what is sleek for us may not necessarily be so for the Chinese consumer.
More so given that colors and numbers in China carry both positive and negative concepts and feelings that may affect the way your brand is perceived.
For this reason, before starting with your social media communication, it is a good idea to design a graphic that is eye-catching and consistent with local tastes.
When it comes to exports, it is never ideal to literally translate content designed for one market, but this is even more true when it comes to the Chinese market.
It is necessary to reimagine the copy and the communication by aligning it with local thinking but without distorting your brand identity.
