     postcard & stationery set
  • This vintage Hollywood postcard and stationery set pays homage to two iconic female celebrities: Marilyn Monroe and Twiggy. Straying from the popular illustrative depiction of the celebrities, the use of various lines weights and circles were employed to create the graphic representation of each icon. One characteristic of each woman is dramatically highlighted as a visual indicator of her identity.

    The design is anchored by the vintage-style typography and texture creating the illusion of an aged postcard. These elements are also present in the design of the post-its and notepad.

    The graphic illustration of the celebrity is the primary visual element, however the strength of the design is rooted in the small details. The beauty of the stamps on the front of the postcards is that they simultaneously illustrate the realistic appearance of a postcard while revealing details of the celebrities’ fame.

    The photographic element on the back of the postcard creates a visual balance between the graphic personality of the front and the open white space of the back. The postage stamp extracts visual elements from the front and back of the postcard to create a chic vintage-style postage stamp.

    A distressed typewriter typeface anchors the typography employed throughout the design. The typography is complimented by several distressed charcoal strokes that create the outlined stamp rims and postage square.
