The stamp: able to stick to one thing till it gets there

Love these stamps commemorating Expo 2010 – Shanghai. Designed by Chris Bleakley, John Plimmer from The Assignment Group and Geoff Francis (not sure if he’s from TAG). I’m mesmerised going back and forth with the visual matches – so stylish, subtle and well – no other word and used in the article, elegant. I particularly like the way they’ve illustrated the stamp cost. And the colours. And the visual style. And the fold-over-ness.

Spotted (because featured) in latest issue of ProDesign. There’s a breakdown of the ‘the cultural links between our two nations’ at NZ Post.

(With a nod to Josh Billings for the title: “Consider the postage stamp: its usefulness consists in the ability to stick to one thing till it gets there”)
