Gong Xi Fa Cai. Kung Hei Fat Choi. Chúc Mừng Năm Mới.
Whatever your language, Happy New Year.
The lunar new year starts at the second new moon after the (northern hemisphere) Winter Solstice. Celebrated by people of Chinese origin the world over, each lunar year is attributed to a sign of the zodiac.
In the third year of the 12 year Chinese astrological calendar, 2022 is a Year of the Tiger. The Wu Xing (Five Elements) sign of the Water Tiger 水 虎 reflects intelligence and wisdom.
Throughout China and in Chinese and other communities around the globe, celebrations with dragons, sea-lions, lanterns and firecrackers will celebrate the new year. Crisp new banknotes will be given to children and unmarried relatives in lucky red envelopes (called ‘lai see’ or ‘hongbao’). Many businesses close for extended periods, and many employees in the Greater China region take annual leave and visit families at ancestral homes.
Digital Tsunami was founded in Hong Kong in 1996. Creative Director, Andrew W Morse, has an understanding of the Greater China market and Chinese business philosophy and practice. He first visited the mainland in 1986, and built up 关系 (guanxi) as he has worked, travelled and filmed for clients across China. Andrew has worked in cities from Yinchuan in the central north to Tianjin in the north east, Taipei and Shanghai in the south east to Zhuhai and Macau in the south. During 2015 and 2016, Andrew resided in Shanghai and built a team and video editing suite to produce print, online and video assets for a multi-billion dollar capital raising project.
For one large project, he lived in the north western province of Ningxia (near Inner Mongolia), producing online, print and video solutions for manufacturing, power production and real estate companies.
The company has also worked for and with people of Chinese heritage in Australia, Canada, Fiji, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Macau, Malaysia, New Zealand, The Philippines, Singapore, the USA and Vietnam.
Digital Tsunami delivers branding, eStrategy, interactive, photography, print, video and web solutions to Chinese clients and businesses in China or promoting their products and solutions to the immense China market.
