Rose Design has created two stamps to commemorate the centenary of the Anglo-French Entente Cordiale. The stamps are the result of a collaboration between Royal Mail and La Poste. Assisted by the Tate and Pompidou Centre, Rose selected the work of French artist Sonia Delaunay and English artist Sir Terry Frost. Both pieces had ‘strong similarities’, says Rose Design creative director Simon Elliot. The consultancy also designed a presentation pack, first day cover, filler cards and hand stamps.
MarinaTex, an organic and biodegradable alternative to traditional plastic, was developed by University of Sussex student Lucy Hughes.
The visual identity combines the club’s “illustrious heritage” and “future glory” with an eye to digital platforms and more casual fans.
The week-long festival will also host speakers including interaction design expert Daljit Singh and representatives from Heatherwick Studio.
