This was a brief set by RSA. Our aim was to create a first class stamp that would inspire the nation. My idea behind the stamps is personal achievements. I designed them to look as though they were sown on letters, to give a permanent look.

The achievements I chose were - ‘1st Step’, ‘1st Word’, ‘1st Birthday’, ‘1st School’, ‘1st Book’ and ‘1st Love’. The idea behind my stamp design is to write down when your ‘first’ was so you can always remind yourself of that moment when you first achieved something new.
