The designer for the entire series of stamps is Ms Lim An-Ling. As an established animator and illustrator, Ms Lim has been designing stamps for SingPost since 2013.

According to popular belief, people born in the Year of the Rabbit are known to be modest and pleasant. While mostly polite and not easily irritable, they are sometimes known to be overly cautious, nervous and tend to escape from reality.
