Stamps - A True Art

With such a small canvas to articulate meaning and your communication, the stamp is probably one of the most challenging and exciting mediums for graphic design. Personally, I have always been a collector of stamps and loved looking at them as I catalogued according to region and year produced.

I recently came across some fantastic photos of some of the great stamp design work over at DavidMcFarline's Flickr page. Beautiful stuff and truly admirable in design. The work done by designer Brian Sadgrove really compliments the cohesive visual identity world renowned Otl Aicher crafted for the 1972 Olympic games in Munich. The great pictograms executed in these stamps, for instance, shows profound influence brought into signage in our modern context and the ubiquitous figures found in public now.

In addition to these works, there are some brilliant random stamps collected from other designers. Take a look!
