Abstract: Social and individual lifestyle patterns are undergoing rapid change in the 21st century. The globalisation of the culture, economy and technology requires ‘global’ design. Globalisation shapes culture and trends in a more integrated way, and Internet technology enables designers to deliver their services and practices without regard for geographical borders. However, diverse regional and local cultures and individual preferences still significantly affect design practice. In China, with its diverse and developing cultures, the trend for smart communication has generated new lifestyle choices, creating marketing opportunities and challenges. We observed the use of smart mobile devices among young people in Hong Kong and Beijing, and compare and discuss the differences in preferences and use scenarios for smart mobile devices in a first to analysing data from users and attempting to trace a new cross-cultural design pattern for smart communication. We conclude that a holistic perspective on smart mobile products and services is needed to solve the problems brought about by the information age in cross-cultural contexts.
