Lunar New Year 2022: The Creative Roar of the Tiger Year


LBB’s Zoe Antonov rounds up the most striking work from around the world ahead of the Year of the Tiger so far

Lunar New Year 2022: The Creative Roar of the Tiger Year

As 2022, the Year of the Tiger, or Year of the Water Tiger approaches, people around the world are getting the festivities ready and the creative world isn’t falling behind. After a difficult period of time, the Year of the Tiger is set to bring a dynamic time forward, push bravery within all of us and raise new energy after a steady Year of the Ox. 

Of course, with it, the Lunar New Year brings reunions, good food and reminiscing, as any national holiday does. Rushing back home to get that red envelope (originally called yasui qian), exchange gifts with the parents, eat some amazing cooked food, and overall set gaze to a new and exciting beginning, people are raising the holiday spirit day by day. 

This year the creative world has really stepped up the Lunar New Year game with some amazing spots spanning numerous subjects. Of course, we have the classics of the inherent comedy in family gatherings, competing to be the ‘favourite child’ and reminiscing on past holiday seasons. But this year there are many stories told in “an authentic and unassuming way – including the sad moments, which is rarely seen in CNY campaigns,” according to Yimeng Zhang, EP Hamlet, Shanghai . “This way many Gen-Z consumers can relate to each of the character’s journeys.” We also have a healthy dose of women empowerment, extremely good filmmaking and…planes with chicken feet?
