It has been more than two years since the creation of "Memories of Jiangnan" as a combination of the mascots of Hangzhou Asian Games including Chenchen, Congcong and Lianlian. Nowadays, they are well known to millions of people on the streets.

Since the new date of Hangzhou Asian Games was determined, Zhang Wen, the mascot designer of Hangzhou Asian Games and the young teacher of China Academy of Art, has carried out the communication and connection with the Asian Games Organising Committee almost every week with regard to the relevant preparation work. Design of souvenirs for award-winning athletes, improvement of mascot application specifications, creation of the mascot atmosphere different from the competition venue for the Asian Games, and design & quality control of mascot derivatives are what they are doing and will continue to do. Zhang Wen said: "In the coming year, we will consider how to make the image of mascots more popular and deepen the public's awareness for them." He also stated a series of ideas, such as creating more animations related to mascots to give them a sense of agile and life-like growth, and linking the technologies like metaverse, to show the concept of Smart Asian Games, endow mascots with interactive features, and make them become the special cultural memory of the Asian Games.
