Using a monochromatic color palette, create a postage stamp. A monochromatic scheme consists of different values (tints and shades) of one single color. You may also decide you want to use one shade of one color.
The objective of this assignment is to:
- create a design that works at a small-scale
- learn to apply palettes specified and to work within design constraints
- incorporate the visual language design principles
Your stamp should include:
Your stamp should be presented at approx 5′x5′ (you may want to do a square, or rectangle). Scan in this composition and create a smaller version that is actual size. put this on an envelope and bring to class with the original composition.
You have three choices for the subject of your stamp; it can honor a person, place or event. If you choose a person, they must be dead for at least 10 years.
Reference zazzle.com to see size/denomination options for the USA (you can even create your own stamp, but it will have the wonky text/barcode on it).
