public_access_description
Every year since 1988, Lawrence Cheung, a design consultancy working predominantly for public sector and non-profit clients, has produced a limited edition Chinese New Year greeting for its clients and friends. The greetings - almost never in the format of a straighforward card - have a fresh and witty take on the animal symbolism of traditional Chinese astrology.
