This stamp of utter graphic simplicity was designed for Royal Mail in 1975. It was designed by Philip Sharland along with the other 3 at the foot of this post designed in the 1960's.
He attended Camberwell School of Art in the late 1940's early 50's where he met fellow designer Dick Negus. In 1951 they formed the design partnership Negus Sharland. The two worked on various graphic aspects of the 1951 Festival of Britain, including the Festival alphabet, still in place on the front of the Royal Festival Hall. Sharland left the practice in 1971 to work on his own.
