Peking Opera (‘Jingju’) is one of the most iconic traditional theatres in China, marketed as a global signifier of Chinese theatre and national identity. The research considers current recognised illustrations of Peking Opera Painted Faces (POPF). Through both new cultural-based product design solutions and design inspired visual communication solutions, the purpose of the new design is to apply the semantic features of Chinese Traditional POPF to the modern design, and establish close contact with all aspects of social life. Also to promote a series of developable plans including product design, interaction design, system design and service design in China and Western countries proceeding from POPF, along with the integration of other elements of traditional Chinese cultures and arts. *POPF is short for Peking Opera Painted Faces.
