An expecting couple wanted bright, cheerful colors and bold primaries to stimulate their baby’s vision and interest. They weren’t interested in a strongly gendered design, and also wanted to enrich their child’s environment with cultural elements of their mixed Chinese American heritage. We settled on a wraparound design of a cheerful dragon on bright sky blue, with red/pink/white carp kite and fanciful cute characters. The carp kite is a celebratory symbol for children, and the baby was born in the Year of the Dog.
