Meaning of Numbers
I designed a series of posters to visualize numbers representing different meanings with different cultures. The purpose is to raise the conversation between students and faculty from different countries.
People with different cultural backgrounds have different understandings of numbers. The meanings of numbers could be totally different or even opposite in different countries. For example, “666” represents “evil” in the west but means “awesome” in China. “555” means “laughing” in Thailand but “crying” in China.
People can also interact on the website and read the story behind each number.
