Many Chinese restaurants in NYC first impressed me with their '80s old-style because the owners started their business for survival and adapted the flavor to cater to American tastes. Around the topic of “American Chinese Restaurant,” I conducted first-hand research and interviews with my ABC (American-born Chinese) friends. Through this investigation, I found that Chinese food has been stamped as “cheap stuff” by most Americans since takeout boxes, posters, and even menus were designed quickly and outdated. The font use and design aesthetic even lack reference to authentic Chinese culture. My thesis project aims to show different aspects of Chinese restaurant stereotypes. The graphic book will function as sarcasm to challenge the prejudiced attitude towards the Chinese community and culture, while the layout and design of the collage zine refer to some of the stereotyped styles.
