With the acceleration of globalization, the acculturation issue of design is becoming an emerging challenge. At the same time, as one of the several design patterns in service design, which is becoming a mainstream in design society, has been adopted by more and more designers in design practice. Based on the output of a design workshop on acculturation issue of design, we presented the process of and learnings from participatory design aiming at helping foreigners living in China to use WeChat. To that end, we described the practice, problems and achievements, lessons learned, and outlook into the future for design practice using participatory design to address the acculturation issue.
