When the brief returned as a set of ‘interactive’ stamps loosely aimed at children, technology had moved on and we were able to suggest these: ten nicely photographed fruit and vegetable stamps, accompanied by 72 stickers. The idea was that you could create your own vegetable faces (inspired at our end by Archimboldo, fuzzy felt and Mr Potato head). Here are our, very neat, graphic designer examples. Some of the designs done by the ‘Great British Public’ were considerably more unhinged, but that in a way was the fun of it. One magazine called them the ‘true democratisation of stamp design’, which was a good point.
Helen Hancocks: "one can't be angry when one looks at a penguin"... This is one of my favourite quotes and I think it needs sharing... "I find penguins at present the only comfort in life. One feels everything in the world so sympathetically ridiculous; one can’t be angry when one looks at a penguin." -- John Ruskin.

The artwork was based around a story that band gave me, which included three kings called Arbor, Ratchet and Bazel who go to visit the Lunar God. The image its self was based upon an old painting I managed to come across of the trinity of god which include the three faces of the lord on one head. I like the way it turned out and it was nice to work on something a little different to usual. The E.P will be realeased by 'Hassle Records' on the 16th of August and will be on sale in stores across the U.K.
