Students customise fruit and veg-themed stamps

At the Four Designers conference last year Johnson Banks principal Michael Johnson challenged students to customise his fruit and veg-themed stamp designs for Royal Mail (DW 20 March 2003). Chris Wilson receives £100 for his winning design in the impromptu competition, a rocket-propelled strawberry (pictured), selected by Johnson and DW editor Lynda Relph-Knight. Runners-up were Matt Davies for his ‘Seven Deadly Sins’ idea and Cheryl Hyams for her skit on celebrities. Royal Mail’s design manager Jane Ryan supported the initiative.
