BESIDE THE SEASIDE POSTAGE STAMP DESIGNS

As an island nation, trips to the seaside are an important part of British culture. This set of stamps and their presentation pack was designed to celebrate childhood memories of day trips to the seaside. By combining popular phrases associated with the seaside with illustrations these stamp designs aim to engage the audience on an auditory and visual level and evoke nostalgia about the British seaside. The illustrations represent a typical day at the seaside starting with building a sandcastle, wanting an ice cream, watching a Punch and Judy show and finally falling asleep from all the excitement.  Adobe Illustrator was used to create the vector illustrations and Indesign was used to complete the final layouts.  Traditional, muted colours were chosen for the design from a restricted palette to keep the design simple and consistent.  © Sarah Delaney November 2009
