Last year’s Dutch Design Week I fell in love with a design of a series of stamps by the Dutch designer Christian Borstlap. An animation was made as addition to the stamp designs, which won several awards:

Besides the stamps, there was a booklet with postcards with the same illustrations. I got it for my birthday, and decided to make it into a poster by framing the postcards into a giant frame I had lying around and some paper for the background. Now I can sit on my couch and stare at my wall and learn life lessons at the same time :)

    @ Gulcin: They are all simple lessons but quite true and important. Often important lessons are simple but hard to follow up.

    @Nikkijoy: Thank you :) It’s pretty simple, you could use any postcards you like.

    @ Samantha: Thanks!

    @Winda: … Either you like my blog, and then there is an option of following it.. Or you don’t. And I am perfectly fine with either way. But just like normal love, I do not believe ‘blog love’ is conditional.
