EIRE €1 - Stamp

St Patrick's Day stamp design

St Patrick's Day Stamp for the Irish Post Office, An Post
Original pencils ideas submitted to the design committee. I really wanted an Arts & Crafts feel for the design.
rough colour showing amends requested by client - Design was inpsired by original Irish stamps from the 1920s. I wanted to retain some of those wonderful vintage colours
colour options based on feedback from design committee - I really wanted to hand letter the typography (I do feel howerever, this type was a little too complicated for the size)
Final design... personally I would have loved to have gone with the hand lettering and a more subtle colouring, but.....
final printed stamps
