a (design) stamp of approval

Finally, the importance and influence of design recognized by the USPS with a set of stamps celebrating the Pioneers of  American Industrial Design.

Great, aren’t they? They are “forever” stamps, meaning they are the same value as first class postage.

The designers featured are Frederick Hurten Rhead, Walter Dorwin Teague, Norman Bel Geddes, Raymond Loewy, Donald Deskey, Gilbert Rohde, Greta von Nessen, Russel Wright, Henry Dreyfuss, Peter Müller-Munk, Dave Chapman, and Eliot Noyes.

And not to be selfish…but hoping for a set of Inspiring Graphic Designers next.  And after that, we will add Milton Glaser to Mount Rushmore. It could happen!
