Pinyin Press was established with a mind to express unique aspects of Chinese culture through unique hand-drawn illustrations, prints, and graphic designs. The brand name "Pinyin Press" is telling about the importance of language as a feature in their work, language being an integral aspect of any culture. Therefore, text, in the form of Chinese characters, Pinyin, and English, is everpresent in their designs. The pieces they create come in various forms, from bags to cards, clothing to ceramics.
