Sir Paul’s Olympic Games


1 January 2012, Isle of Man
London 2012 Olympic Games
design: Sir Paul Smith

There is another set on the Olympic Games, designed by Sir Paul Smith.

I like the top one the best.  As the designer stated in the presentation pack, they are positive and colourful – but I suspect that he did not take a long time to research and design them, unfortunately…  The in-house design team was perhaps shocked by the colour restriction and smallness of what they had to design – even so, for example, the stamp on Archery issued in 2009 has a similar and much better composition.

Anyway, they are cheerful and pleasant if you use them on an envelope and a post card, as their colours are sophisticated.
