Cultural Symbiosis: Chu Culture and Course Teaching of Interface Design- A Case Study on A Chinese Bestiary
Abstract— Chu culture’s connotation is broad and profound, however, the content of ancient books is difficult to
be loved by people in the modern context. In the course of interface design, the study of Chu culture and the
teaching of interface design were combined based on the theory of cultural symbiosis. After analyzing the
interface design of traditional culture APPs, design disciplines of these APPs including sense of interest, usability
and consistency were proposed. In the end, the APP named A Chinese Bestiary was taken as a design case study,
and interface design of the APP was presented. The education model of the cultural symbiosis, would be extended
in other related design courses.
