Jersey Post Magna Carta 800

The Brief:

Jersey Post commissioned us to design a new set of stamps to celebrate 800 years of the Magna Carta. The stamps needed to demonstrate the ideology of the Magna Carta and show how the content and meaning of this historic document remains just as relevant today as when it was first signed 800 years ago on the banks of the River Thames at Runnymede.

The Results:

We designed a set of six square stamps and a miniature sheet. Our colourful contemporary approach depicts six different ideologies from the Magna Carta; Justice, Freedom, Human Rights, Liberty, Citizenship and Democracy. The stamps were printed using offset lithography with gold metallic ink. They are available to buy in a variety of formats from Jersey Stamps.
