TNT Post / Kinderpostzegels
Lessons Learned in Life
There are things you don’t learn from a book which may in fact be more important than learning your tables. This insight by Christian Borstlap was the inspiration for a design series of stamps in collaboration with “TNT’s Children’s Stamp”; a Dutch charity promoting the education of vulnerable children. Alongside the playfully illustrated tips, his lessons on life were listed along the margins of the sheets of stamps. The concept was brought to life in a book of postcards and an internationally awarded short animation. Result: a € 9.5 million benefit.
Awards: D&AD Yellow Pencil, Golden European Design award, Dutch Design Award and a Silver ADCN Lamp.
