Layout and Design of Postage Stamps from Around the World
This graphic was designed for the IGPC website product section. I created a square stamp shaped vector mask, which I applied to a small section on a variety of postage stamps and tiled together for a mosaic effect.
During my employment at IGPC, I had had the opportunity to work with a variety of governments to design a wide assortment of topical postage stamps. These stamps are legal tender and valid for postage in the country of issue. Below is a sampling of some of the postage stamps I designed over the years.

US Civil Rights for Tuvalu | Connecting Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr, and Barack Obama was the goal of this sheet. I researched the three prominent public figures and came up with a timeline that would connect all to the theme of "Realization of the Dream." I then montaged photos and an iconic vector image for the background and created two stamps for each leader, one depicting a portrait which appears as a more traditional postage stamp and the other a fully expanded image, symbolizing a historic moment for the leader. I adhered to a muted palette for an historic impression.
Tropical Fish for Grenada | I used watercolor images of the fish illustrated by Manuel Servin, and a combination of Photoshop filters to create the background scene.
