Osborne Ross has designed a range of Royal Mail stamps featuring illustrated animals hanging off the edges of envelopes. “The brief at the beginning was very open,” says Andrew Ross, “’design something which has never been done before and which will appeal to children’. We presented several ideas but this was the one that everyone liked from the very start."
Osborne Ross did all the illustrations themselves and designed them to allow straight edges for perforations: part of the language of a stamp. The studio has worked with the Royal Mail for some years, starting with a National Portrait Gallery project in 2006.
