The creative work for the campaign was designed by joint organisers from the Chinese publishing industry. The bright, colourful design gives details of the London Book Fair – China: New Perspectives, New Concepts 2012 – Market Focus in English and Chinese, and highlights key statements of ‘Inspiration’, ‘Collaboration’, ‘Vitality’ and ‘Evolving’ in the shape of a colourful Chinese fan.

The campaign will run for two weeks giving 3,800,698 people the chance to see the advertising (figures from Ocean Outdoor).
