I know that the parallel between God and Google is starting to be a cliche, but somehow since the beta launch of Google+ this came top of mind again for me. As Google just added yet another divine quality to its already quite potent set of services to us humble servants of Google. : )
Actually the title should have said something like ‘a first attempt at understanding web design for Chinese markets’, but that did not sound as cool. (Thanks @AskAaronLee for inspiring this title.)
I have felt a bit like Robert Langdon, in the Dan Brown book The Da Vinci Code, for the past few months, as I have been trying to unravel the mysterious (to me) cultural codes driving Chinese web design. This because I am more and more often faced professionally with the challenge to create web experiences also for Chinese markets.
