  • My thesis Sweet Stamps introduces the phenomena of postage stamp design. In addition to describing evolution, innovations and factors that influence stamp design, I focus on the design process that resulted in a Valentine’s Day stamp set for 2013. Valentine’s Day stamps are aimed at young women whose interests are observed through target group interviews. The end product is an illustrated sheet of stamps for Finnish Post, spicing up snail-mail with a bit of sweetness.
