UK Fashion Stamps


Another one of my university projects. This time I had to create a series of six stamps to commemorate the UK fashion industry. Here's a list of the criteria that I needed to follow:

- The stamps had to be 37mm deep but could be as wide as I liked.

- The stamps needed to feature the Queen's head facing inwards in one of the top corners.

- The stamp values needed to be 1st, 58p, 60p, 67p, 88p and 97p (but I was not to include the "p" in the design).

- There needed to be a clear visual distinction between each stamp yet they should work as a series.

I chose to concentrate my effort on fashion trends that started in The UK and keep it all tied together with a simple, uniform sub-graphic. The rest of the pieces are comprised of macro photography on a material/garment that I thought summed up that trend.

Please vote and review.

Thanks in advance.

Edit: The New Romantic stamp now has a rose in the corner and the contrast turned down so that the material stands out more. There is also a slightly different Punk graphic that is less dilapidated.

If these were real stamps,they would definitely be on my mail...if I could afford them.

It was a fun project.

The Punk and Metal stamps are my favourites of all of these.
I feel like the Mod one is a bit plain, maybe if the green background was a bit more army-like it would work better.

Decky responds:

I know what you mean about a camo background for the Mod stamp but it doesn't feel as Mod to me as the dark green Anorak.

Wholly, your stamps are very nice, very chic; I especially like the dapper DANDY stamp. The PUNK, METAL, and COOL BRITANNIA stamps are also great. However, I also feel that the NEW ROMANTICISM stamp could use something other than the frills to sum it up, like maybe just a mixture of different New Romantic fabrics (that could just be me, though, since I'm not entirely familiar with New Romanticism and had to look it up). Furthermore, I was going to critique the MOD stamp but I noticed that all of your stamps have the off-centre trend, and I liked how the crinkled green of the shirt compliments the felty red bull's eye of the mod target, so I don't really have any suggestions for that one.

Decky responds:

Thank you for the review. I agree that the Mod & New Romantic stamps are the weakest and I too am at odds as to how to Improve the Mod one. The New Romantic stamp I'm thinking of adding a rose to as I'm feeling that it's a little plain.
