De Stijl Stamps

The brief for this project was to create a stamp, envelope, cancellation seal, and first day cover, for a popular design movement. As my movement was De Stijl I really wanted to hone in on the movement and really learn everything I could about the who, what, when, where, how and why. With that in mind, I focused on the three founders of the movement, Theo Van Doesburg, Piet Mondrian, Bart Van Der Leck. Then I added in Vilmos Huszar and Gerritt Rietveld. For the design, I really wanted to incorporate and pay homage to the style. So every piece has a pattern, that was created by me based off of the work that I was thoroughly inspired by, specifically Piet Mondrian and Theo Van Doesburg.
