AUSTRALIA POST - SHORTLISTED IN THE COMMUNICATION ARTS COMPETITION 2021 - WINNERS TBA
Chrissy has been commissioned by Australia Post to design their Year of the Ox Christmas Island Lunar New Year stamp collection.
Designed to appeal to Lunar New Year celebrators, includingns of Asian descent and collectors in Asia. The three main oxen are the hero stamps, decorated with Chinese patterns, gold coins, ingots and lucky knots to attract wealth and fortune in the New Year. The lower denomination stamps (12 zodiac animals) are stylistically consistent yet subtle so they do not dominate the hero oxen. The sheet background design features lanterns, kumquats, gold coins and ingots, all of which are associated with LNY celebrations. Red and gold are the signature colours that represent the LNY.
