Star Wars

Feel the force

Royal Mail commissioned us to create a set of 36 special stamps and collectibles celebrating the characters who inhabit the world of Star Wars. These were released over 3 series, spanning 5 years.

We drew inspiration for the set from the collage-style posters and classic visual language of Star Wars – honouring that tradition whilst creating contemporary images.

Each stamp contains a large, heroic head-and-shoulders portrait, combined with a smaller ‘story corner’, depicting a pivotal scene relevant to the character. After meticulously selecting  the best possible images to create dynamic compositions, we brought in digital artist Malcolm Tween. Tween’s technique offers a hyper-realistic feel and helps to seamlessly blend the main images with their backgrounds and unify the set.

For the first time on a British stamp a special ultraviolet ink was used. When viewed under UV light secret symbols are revealed.

As well as the central set of stamps, we were asked to produce a huge range of collectible materials to accompany them.
