Classic Transport Toys
designed by Trickett & Webb
I wrote that I don’t like stamps of photographed toys….. and then I found these British stamps! They are good – delivering an evocative feeling of vintage toys. What makes them different then? Maybe the simplicity of a white background and the braveness of adding nothing behind the object. For example, these Swiss stamps or these Bosnia and Herzegovina – are not bad, but not cool. This Liechtenstein set is funny and my favourite.
Once I saw a collection of Meccano used in the design development process in a design studio. It’s a wonderful system, good enough to examine how a real product works!
