Our design studio is where the magic happens - where our stamps come to life. As an art director, Lynette’s role is to lead a team of in-house designers, and to balance creative output with the needs of our business, partners, and collectors.
Lynette also commissions work, when we need specific skills. With certain designs, we might use a botanical illustrator, or fine-art photographer, or consult with a scientist on the anatomy of an animal.
It takes 12-18 months from stamp concept to production, with the design component taking about 8 months. Stamps are a unique medium, and all design decisions must be well-measured.
For advice, and that crucial impartial view, Lynette meets regularly with a team of panel of external design, who make up our Stamp Advisory Committee.
