Entry Title and Organization: Red Egg and Ginger Party Invitation, Gary Wong Designs
Award Received: Gold
Description: The Chinese traditionally celebrate the birth of a child one month after the child is born. This is similar to a baby shower in the U.S., however, in ancient times, they waited a month to ensure the baby’s survival before allowing celebration. The one-month party is called
a “Red Egg and Ginger” party.
Strategy: Design a modern-looking invitation that incorporates elements of Chinese tradition. The baby was born in the Year of the Dragon, so it was important to include references of a dragon as well.
