The dragon is awakening, and when it does it will grace statues, banners, and even red packets. The latter is now getting a modern graphical makeover and a typographical nod with the mythical creature, courtesy of The Secret Little Agency, an independent creative company within the family of famed advertising agency Mother.

This Asian kid is doing its parent proud by putting a unique spin on a centuries-old tradition. To celebrate the 2024 Year of the Dragon, it’s reimagined a staple of Lunar New Year festivities, the red packet, or hong bao in Mandarin. Behold, the Long Bao.

Red packets, usually filled with gifts of money, are exchanged during Chinese New Year as symbols of good luck and prosperity. The custom dates back to the Han Dynasty in 202 BC.

And 2024, the Year of the Dragon, holds special significance in the Chinese zodiac. The dragon, a revered beast, denotes success, honor, and dignity,  and is believed to foster growth, progress, and abundance.

In a play on the dragon’s name, The Secret Little Agency has extended the concept of the red packet, birthing the Long Bao.

“The Chinese dragon is known and pronounced as ‘long’ or ‘loong’, so this dragon year, we decided to extend the red packet and make it long-er,” explains a spokesperson from the agency.
