About This Project
Create a set of two stamps celebrating the work of two contemporary Canadian women architects. Expand the design to the stamp pane, official first day cover, and 10-pack. Ensure that the design reflects the contemporary nature of the architects’ work, as well as presents the work and the architects in a celebratory way.
The award-winning work of the architects is featured on the stamps, illustrated in a clean, modern style to reflect the contemporary buildings. The Order of Canada is used as the day of issue cancellation mark, and an architect’s compass for the colour bars. A motif derived from the buildings and architectural elevations adds visual interest to the stamp pane without distracting from the stamps.
