The U.S. Postal Service releases stamps in the ongoing Music Icons series, celebrating the songwriters, performers and musicians who have shaped the American cultural landscape. 

Journey Group was invited to design a collection of posters around these popular stamp issuances.

The work

Commemorating the first releases of the stamps in this series, the Journey Group team was inspired by vintage concert posters and designed the posters to include the dates of the stamps’ first day of issues and engaging original artwork inspired by the stamps themselves.

The colorful, screen-printed posters were paired with a stamp that could be mounted by collectors.
