Design in Miniature
Since Tony Benn and David Gentleman spearheaded the modernisation of British stamp design in the mid-1960s, Royal Mail’s special stamps programme has gone from strength to strength. Working with the best of the British creative industry and collaborating with an array of innovative artists, illustrators and photographers such as Andy Goldsworthy, Nick Park, Lord Snowdon, David Hockney and Axel Scheffler, Royal Mail’s Design Team has consistently pushed the boundaries of design and in the process has successfully created numerous award-winning stamps.
In this evening’s presentation, Head of Design and Editorial Marcus James, and Design Managers Catharine Brandy and Dean Price, will reveal the evolution of the commissioning and design development process – from initial concept to finished design – and share their favourite stamp designs along the way.
The discussion will be chaired by Jim Sutherland of Studio Sutherl&.
