Michael Chan who was invited to design the YOTD has been in the field of tattooing for 23 years and is known around the world as a tattoo savant. The theme of this keyboard is headlined by the Xiào tian quan from ancient oriental mythology, with images of brave troops, lotus flowers and ghost heads done in ukiyo-e style to compliment the mythical dog. Zinc alloy is used to make the top cover, giving the product a solid and dynamic exterior.

With a design so beautiful, the quality must also be great for the product to be special. Ducky has consistently  combined traditional art and modern technology together over the last several years, giving a sense of life, warmth and emotion to what is usually a soulless product.
