London's graphic arts design house, hat trick design, has come up with a couple really beautiful stamp designs and the theme is Shakespeare. I especially like the hand-lettered typography by Marion Deuchars.
I found the mention about these terrific stamps at Fast Co.'s website, which is loaded with interesting finds and articles. In fact, Fast Company is one of the few magazines I read faithfully, cover to cover.
Professional designers learn early to work within constraints: time, budget, materials, price. But the team at the London graphic arts firm hat-trick design has a special knack for a particularly daunting creative challenge: delivering big design on a tiny canvas. I'm pretty sure they hit a home run on this one!
