Bring the funk.

In the Year of the Tiger.



And The Funk.

In The Year of the Tiger.

Every Lunar New Year we see lackluster posts in our social feeds shouting "Gong Xi Fa Cai!". Usually, mediocre images of red with gold icons of the animal of the year posted by organizations that don’t have the creativity or the resources to do something cool.

It’s better to not post anything rather than post shit for the sake of posting shit.

In the Year of the Tiger we challenged ourselves to create something fun and engaging. Something creative and technology driven. Something we, as a team, would have a blast making and would be proud of.

Something different.

Something fun.

In just seven days, despite our client workload, we created 幸福,繁荣和迪斯科, or "Happiness, Prosperity, and Disco", for the 2022 Lunar New Year. It's a fortune telling mobile app and art-piece designed to celebrate the Year of the Tiger in a 70s funk way.

Not only that, we've made the art and the code open source. We do hope folks learn, have fun, make cool products, and give us some props for the effort.

We gotta have that funk.

This little app was created as a tribute to the 70's Black Kung Fu films and funky disco culture from Michael's childhood.

幸福,繁荣和迪斯科 is a fun fortune telling app that tells the story of the 12 Chinese Zodiac animals and their race to the Jade Emperor at the Golden Gates.

Each of the 12 animals was illustrated and designed to represent famous artists and musicians from the funk and disco era of the 70s.
