representational / 具象表現

1972Pakistan001

1972 Pakistan

I featured a stamp on the heart in the previous post and now this one is encouraging blood donation, from the same year.

This stamp is not particularly cool or well designed, but strong.  This aspect of appealing is one of the desired characters of stamp design, I assume.

一つ前のポストでは心臓の切手を紹介し、これは同じ年の献血を呼びかける切手です。

ずばり具象で、デザイン構成として特にかっこ良いわけではないけれど、強い。こういう存在の強さも切手に求められていることだろうと思います。単純明快な表現と、色のチョイスでしょうか?
