Commemorating 200 years of Frankenstein, design & art direction

Client – Jersey Post
Work produced at So design

To commemorate 200 yearsof Mary Shelley’s classic novel
 Frankenstein, So worked with Jersey Post to produce a set of 8 stamps plus associated products. The task was to depict Mary Shelly’s novel, and her underlying messaging and contemporary ideas of the time. 
In preparation for the launch of the stamps in June, we developed a teaser video incorporating elements from the stamp issue to help build interest for when the stamps go on sale.


'I knew they would do more than illustrate scenes from the book, they would  bring the creature and his Gothic tale to life. The passion for the project, combined with impressive creative and technical ability have produced artworks worthy of a book that has endured for 200 years. They are a pleasure to work with and we, at Jersey Post, are thrilled with the results of their efforts.'
Melanie Gouzinis – Head of Philatelic Jersey Post
