In 2015, the U.S. Postal Service released postcard-rate stamps that celebrated four eye-catching American birds: the red knot, king eider, roseate spoonbill and frigatebird. 

Our president Greg Breeding served as the art director for these stamps, working with artist Tyler Lang.

Stamp design

Greg Breeding designed the stamps, which show stylized, digital portraits of the four birds, illustrated by Tyler Lang. Lang researched the birds to determine which pose best captured the unique traits of each species, and the resulting stamps offer an eye-catching, modern treatment of these appealing coastal creatures.
