'Uber but for Xi Jinping' editorial illustration

Project by Alva Skog

Alva created an illustration for The New York Times Opinion piece, ‘Uber but for Xi Jinping’ by Audrey Jiajia Li.

The article looks at Xuexi Qiangguo, a new instant messenger service, news aggregator and social network all in one, introduced by the Publicity Department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party back in January.

Xuexi Qiangguo has quickly become the most downloaded app on Apple’s Chinese app store, and has been downloaded 73 million times on Huawei’s app store.

Throughout the article, Audrey Jiajia Li trials the app, and explains her experience on Xuexi Qiangguo.
