"Distance means so little when someone means so much."

- Tom McNeal -

I designed a hypothetical outcome of a special stamp collection for Royal Mail base the celebrations of Valentine’s Day in different cultures. The purpose of the collection is to celebrate Valentine’s Day but also a reminder for the audience that Valentine’s Day should be a romantic festival for showing your love to you beloved ones which nowadays being too commercialised.


I use the red thread to form the title of the stamp collection. By focusing on the theme of the red thread, it highlights the cultural context of the design. The flow of the ‘thread’ conveys the gentleness of love. Different from the previous, this time, the thread is ‘wrapping around’ the collection case which symbolises the unbreakable bond between lovers.
