This was my submission to the RSA Student Awards 2012 // Stamps: Brief A: Social Mail.
The brief was to create a set of stamps that would encourage people to write traditional letters and embrace the art of traditional letter-writing.
After the brainstorm and elimination of a few ideas, I decided to focus the project on how letters that are handwritten has a unique and different character compared to if you send an email, text or Facebook message.
You can never get the outcome of “handmade” if you do it on the computer,
neither the personal feeling that you get when you receive a written letter in the mail.
I therefor made the stamps by hand, cutting out abstract little figures that looks home made. Telling a little story about friendship.
