The designs are based mostly across the concept of ‘a march by way of time’, and have been dropped at life by animation studio Animade. NB Studio commissioned Birkin because of her “joyous and vibrant fashion of illustration” – which appeared the right match for the milestone celebration for the LGBTQ+ neighborhood.

The stamps use a panoramic format to accommodate Birkin’s illustrations, which look to replicate the concept of a timeline. Printed in vivid full bleed color, they mix to create a tapestry-like aesthetic. You’ll be able to watch the complete animation under!

Animade labored with NB Studio author Dan Radley, sound engineers Field of Toys Audio and voice actor Layton Williams to create the animated movie, entitled A March By means of Time. The brief depicts the LGBTQ+ neighborhood’s journey by way of the historical past of Pleasure, constructing on the characters created by Birkin for the stamps and weaving a narrative by way of advanced hand-drawn, frame-by-frame animation.

A March By means of Time is proven on the Royal Mail web site, the place the Pleasure Particular Stamp collection is accessible to pre-order.

“Over the previous 50 years the expansion of Pleasure has been exponential, every year evolving into an even bigger, higher, extra various and extra inclusive model of its earlier self,” says Alan Dye, artistic director at and proprietor of NB Studio. “What we cherished about Sofie’s work was her skill to painting a story by way of her pretty free-flowing fashion.”

To make sure that the person parts within the stamps’ illustration have been “respectful to all identities featured,” the designers engaged Pleasure organisations across the UK, which consulted on the whole lot from flags to tattoos,  clothes and handkerchiefs.
