Traditional Chinese graphic elements have a unique and rich cultural connotation in graphic design, which is of great help to the development and diversity of graphic design in the world. However, there are relatively few systematic studies on the specific application and influence of these elements in graphic design. Using literature review and case analysis, this study aims to explore the examples of the use of traditional Chinese graphic elements in the history of graphic design in the world, and analyze their application methods and effects. Through the collection of relevant literature and cases, this study conducts an in-depth study and analysis of traditional Chinese graphic elements used in design works. The survey results show that three quarters of people love and support the design with Chinese style elements. Traditional Chinese graphic elements have been widely used in graphic design and have a significant impact on design works.
