05.09.2016 - Asiago Award 2015 goes to Royal Mail (UK)
(aa) Some people call them ‘The Oscars of the Stamp Design World’: the Asiago Awards that are presented yearly in Italy, in the city of Asiago. Royal Mail has won the 2015 Edition of the competition, with its stamp series ‘Inventive Britain’, that consists of eight different stamps.
The stamps show inventions and innovations. Depicted are an i-limb bionic hand, carbon fibre, DNA sequencing, fibre optics, reflective road studs (‘cat’s eyes’), stainless steel, the World Wide Web and the Colossus decryption computer.
The Asiago Jury described the British stamp issue as ‘bold and stimulating’ and was very impressed by the ‘visual perfect images’.
