Postage stamps express national identity and promote national pride. Additionally, some stamps may also promote awareness of events, people, places, issues, and historic events. A stamp itself presents a special design challenge—communicating a vast amount of information into a relatively small area.
This series of five commemorative postage stamps focuses strictly on the NSA and the negative implications and security concerns that have arisen since the leaks in June of 2013. I had a fun time writing the copy on the stamps, and I think that the simplicity of each stamp helps to clearly communicate the message to whoever is on the receiving end of each letter.
