Harbour City Red Packets
2019 Year of the Pig

Winner of The Golden Pin Design Award 2019

Giving away red packets is an essential Chinese New Year tradition. Our concept for the year of the pig was inspired by the simple excitement of getting your wallet ‘well-fed’ during the festive celebration. According to Chinese zodiac, those born in the year of the pig are known to be compassionate, generous, and diligent. The characteristics of pigs, specifically their chubby cheeks, are also a symbol of wealth.

We embody this element with a contemporary spin on the Chinese clasp purse. A round and hefty contour of the purse subtly complements the Year of the Pig theme.

The design honors tradition with a playful use of bold colors and rounded graphics, each design is a graphic metaphor of New Year greeting message of good fortune and prosperity. The design (total of 5 styles) comes in two sizes. All the red packets are embossed and foiled for an embroidered texture, with a special embossed opening mimicking the clasp of a coin purse. The collection celebrates the festive season by blessing family and friends a bellyful of happiness in the year ahead.
