CARRY US THROUGH STAMPS

Graphic Design / Illustration / Artworking

The story behind the Carry Us Through stamps is obviously one that relates to the Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020 and how it has changed our lives, perhaps forever. Some have lost friends, some have lost their jobs and businesses, some have lost their lives. All of us are affected.

We are still living this story, so you could write your own ending if you wish. If it is one of hope and fortitude, love, care and compassion, share it with friends and family; write them a letter, or write to the generation that will follow you, or to yourself. History is made up of personal stories from times of great events and you are part of the history that will be taught in 10, 100 and 1000 years. Let’s make it a time of community and of care and of love.

Together with the Isle of Man Post Office we created these stamps to honour those who have kept us going through these hard times.
