Having a little look around for some ideas and inspiration on a project today we came across these great stamps designed by The Chase | Creative Consultants.
William Shakespeare is considered the greatest writer in the history of the English language. With 2016 marking the 400th anniversary of his death the Royal Mail invited The Chase to design a set of stamps and accompanying presentation pack to commemorate his lasting legacy. Each stamp features a typographic interpretation of quotations taken from some of his most famous works. The presentation pack chronicles his life and printed works, written by Sir Jonathan Bate.
The use of just two colours, good choice of paper and simple typography lets the quotes of Shakespeare do the talking! Simple is very often the best forms of design.
