Postage Stamps Brief – Alternative Energy Sources and Energy Conservation

“Design a series of six stamps that will bring attention to this issue.”

My designs show a set of three se-tenant stamps (joined pairs). Each pair shows easily recognisable alternative energy sources, along with simple tips on energy conservation. The se-tenant pairs together make a complete image, and each individual stamp has its own image which works independently.

Ethical Design Project

A set of six postcards; depicting three ‘ethical’ companies (Fairtrade / Co-Op Bank / Oxfam) and three companies which are regarded as having ‘non-ethical’ working practices (Nike / Apple / Coca-Cola). The reverse of each postcard shows information regarding the working practices of each company, accompanied by the words ‘YOU decide’.

By providing information regarding each company, it allows the consumer to make an informed decision about whether or not to buy from those companies.
