... OK, so I totally missed this, don't know how, but I did...
Danish Fashion Designer Malene Birger has designed a stamp! Yes, a stamp...
All of a sudden - well, since July / August 2011 - it has become fashionable sending a letter again!!
And how did I find out about this you ask, well, on my birthday I received a letter from home with a lovely card and a FAN.TAS.TIC birthday gift.... The envelope was white, the writing black, the two different stamps were black, white & silver, and by closer inspection this is what I found!
You just know I went straight to the computer to find out more, right?
Well, it turns out this "little" design job was given to Malene Birger (a seasoned designer) and to Silas Adler (a newcomer), both stamps were launched during Copenhagen Fashion Week. Quite an honor!! As with her art, this stamp has been "drawn freehand, with broad, soft lines and bold, pure graphics."
I love the black bow and the black border!!
Think about the combination of stamps, ink and and color next time you write a letter. Presentation is everything people, even when sending a letter, and not just when it is a wedding invitation!!
