Hong Kong blogger creates creative ‘warning icons’ for city life

A series of original customised warning icons mimicking the ones used by the Hong Kong Observatory for weather alerts have gained popularity after being published by local blog Expat Lingo.

The blog is run by Jennifer Brown, an American former-lawyer who currently lives in Hong Kong with her husband and two children. The six original icons include tongue-in-cheek references to aspects of Hong Kong life such as the Hong Kong Sevens (Drunk Seven Fan Warning), crowds of mainland tourists (Golden Week), and clandestine street races (Boy Racers).
