SCCC CNY Red Packet 2022: Fusion of Modern & Traditional
SCCC paired 76-year-old calligraphy master Yong Cheong Thye with 28-year-old illustrator Toby Tan (Tobyato) to create an exclusive design for SCCC’s CNY red packet for 2022, resulting in five unique designs that is a blend of traditional and modern art.
Each packet has a digitally stenciled tiger interacting with the Chinese character fu written in the five main calligraphic scripts. The latter shows how Chinese characters have evolved through the centuries, from the earliest oracle bone script to later developments like seal, regular, running and cursive scripts. They reflect changes in our ways of life over time, just as how our culture is ever-evolving.
