Royal Mail has released a postcard book, designed by Delaney Design Consultants, to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the post box. Called Post Boxes: A Celebration in Postcards, the book is billed as celebrating ‘the richness of an icon of community, communication and the Kingdom’. The book contains 25 reproductions of Post Office posters from the 1930s to the 1960s and the five new Pillar to Post stamps. Priced at £5.99, the book is available from www.royalmail.com.
The project, which centres around an updated “WB” shield, aims to lay the groundwork for the company’s future ahead of its centenary in 2023.
The updated international logo is a “true reflection of the Dutch mentality” and is central to a brand strategy based around openness, inventiveness and inclusivity.
The redesign aims to attract “new, younger and more culturally diverse audiences” to the 118-year-old magazine, while avoiding confusion with The Times newspaper.
