Royal Mail Music Giants – Queen
Working with Royal Mail to immortalise rock’s most regal four-piece.
Queen are, without doubt, one of rock’s most enduring and iconic bands. Loved by fans all over the globe, boasting the UK’s best-selling album of all time amongst their record-breaking back catalogue and responsible for some of history’s most legendary live performances, they are genuine rock royalty. Our clients Royal Mail invited us to help celebrate Queen’s meteoric career with a Special Stamp issue, only the third ever band to be honoured in this way following The Beatles in 2007 and Pink Floyd in 2016. Delving into the band’s archives, we unearthed live performance photography, candid back-stage shots and fascinating ephemera. Our work included a set of live performance stamps, a definitive stamp (featuring an iconic band line-up shot in 1974 by Johnny Dewe-Matthews), Presentation Pack, First Day Cover, Coin Covers, Prestige Stamp Book and hand-stamps. All in all, a show-stopping project.
