We were asked by Julia Royce, curator at RS&A, to create the branding for a pop-up space called ‘Posted’, a temporary exhibition space in a former post office in East London. ‘Posted’ would present a series of exhibitions, performances, screenings and workshops exploring and celebrating Great Britain’s postal heritage.
We began by researching what the Post Office has meant to the people of Britain, past and present. We thought about its simplest and most endearing symbol, the letterbox. After trying out various letterbox mouths, we settled on a shape and applied a font reminiscent of the Royal Mail’s to complete the branding. Artists participating in POSTED include Jo Broughton, Natasha Chambers, Oliver Clegg, Julie Cockburn, Adam Dix, Itai Doron, Sean Dower, Tracey Emin, Angus Fairhurst, Vanessa Fristedt, Tom Gidley, Cate Halpin, Susie Hamilton, Georgie Hopton, Rachel Howard, Harland Miller, Polly Morgan, Benjamin Newton, Molly Palmer, James White and Miyo Yoshida.
