Around the world in eight stamps

Around the world in eight stamps

Client / Personal Work

A set of illustrative postage stamps to commemorate the highlights of an incredible journey. 

Having recently returned from several months of travelling, I wanted to create something to remember some of the amazing places we visited and capture some of our favourite memories (I also thought it might be a good way to get my design muscles working after a few months out of the game!). 

I was keen for the series to have a thread of continuity running through it, and decided that the structure of a postage stamp would work nicely as frame for each illustration. I also liked how postage stamps speak to travel and far off places, and how their small scale requires a strong, simple idea and bold, minimal execution.
