Hong Kong Airlines ushers in the Lunar New Year with lai see designed by local artists

They all have different backgrounds but the one thing these four artists have in common is talent in spades

Lock Lai

Lock Lai is a Hong Kong-based product designer who founded toy brand TinBotTM in 2016. His action figures have magnetic parts and are inspired by everything from mahjong tiles to Hong Kong’s ice cream carts and iconic public transport. Hong Kong Airlines cabin crew receive the TinbotTM treatment for Lock Lai’s deep red lai see.

Lee Kin Ming

Using Chinese writing artist Lee Han’s manuscript of 5,000 words, combined with extra characters from the Taiwanese Code Company, Lee Kin Ming has helped create a comprehensive library of computer fonts called Lee Han Kong, named after the writing artist who helped create it. Lee Kin Ming showcases this unique font on his red lai see.
