New Work: Royal Mail Yearpack 2010

New Work: Royal Mail Yearpack 2010:

Harry Pearce was commissioned by Royal Mail to design the 2010 Yearpack containing first day covers for each of the sets of stamps issued during the year. The Yearpack reveals a miscellany of memorable events from British and world history, including famous births and deaths, unique achievements and philatelic anniversaries, all of which took place on each of the issue dates.

The front and back covers feature a typographic, abstract collage of dates and headlines. Inside the spreads take each issue date and create a typographic grid of stories and headlines of other events taking place on that day throughout history.

Project Team: Harry Pearce, partner-in-charge and designer; Diogo Soares, designer.
