NHB Baby Dragons Collection 2012

The Year of the Dragon is upon us!

We've designed a limited edition ang pow (red packet) collection for the Museum Roundtable (MR), a collective of public and private museums and heritage galleries chaired by the National Heritage Board (NHB).

In total, we gave birth to 41 unique baby dragons to represent the various member MR museums, plus 2 specially created baby boy and girl dragons.

It was a pretty big task, but one filled with fun and joy (and sweat and tears). To ensure we complete the entire collection without a hitch, we mobilised virtually all our designers, each adopting a few baby dragons and tasked with making them come alive.

Through the hectic few weeks of giving "birth" to the baby dragons, we have also given endearing nicknames to all of them. A sign of how much they have grown to be part of the thinc family! :)

We have our own favourites of course!
Which is yours?

    Hi Andy,

    I am a red packet collector. However, I ave missed out the River Hongbao celebration. I tried to access the official wepbpage but was diverted to and fro.
    No one seem to know what exactly it is.
    Can you advise if I can purchase the whole set from you?

      hi pat!

      Unfortunately we are just the creative agency who designed the red packets for our client (NHB), so we are not the ones who’s selling it.

      I could check with the client for you to see if they are still selling it!
