From light to dark

So, due to the lightest time of the year in Finland, I decided to look back to the darkest time of the year: December and Christmas..

I took part in a postal stamp competition a few months back. The idea was to design a postal stamp for Christmas. Didn’t win it, but it was great I got time carved out to dig into postal stamp designing. Hope I get to design more of them some day! Here’s two of my entries, the favorite ones, and as you can see – they’re a couple… The scenery of the stamp is from Helsinki, Pohjoisranta (I used to run a lot there during winter).

I really liked the stamps that won. The illustrators did a great job!
