Chinese New Year - Year of the Rat

In 2020, Chinese New Year is celebrated on January 25th. The rat is the first in the 12-year-cycle of Chinese zodiac signs. People born in the year of rat are generally born with the zodiac rat characteristics. They are believed to be very industrious and thrifty, diligent and positive. Here are some great images to celebrate the Year of the Rat - Chinese New Year.

In Chinese culture, rats were seen as a sign of wealth and surplus. Because of their reproduction rate, married couples would pray to them for children.

Optimistic and energetic, people born in the Rat year are likeable by all. They are sensitive to other’s emotions but are stubborn with their opinion.

On the financial side, they like saving and can be stingy. However, their love for hoarding will sometimes cause them to waste money on unnecessary things.

There are multiple blessings and greetings for Chinese New Year as well as variations even for the most basic “Happy New Year!”

The simplest is, of course, Happy New Year: 新年快乐 (xīn nián kuài lè)

 Chinese New Year dates:

February 12, 2021 - Ox
February 01, 2022 - Tiger
January 22, 2023 - Rabbit

Designing made easy. Once you’ve picked the base color, choose different shades based around it. You won't have to worry about colors clashing or if someone else is already using your color choice.

Line Art

The line art itself is a simplified illustration style. It is elegant, simple, minimalistic, and clean.

Line art also involves the use of line elements, and they're especially appealing when the lines form unexpected paths and shapes.

Commonly applied to website design and packaging design, a sense of vintage is expected to become one of the biggest graphic design trends this year.
