USPS recognized for artistic excellence

Yahoo Finance and PR Newswire report that U.S. Olympic athletes weren’t the only ones winning gold medals this winter!

Three stamps from the Postal Service’s 2005 stamp program received some gold-medal recognition for artistic design and excellence. The Cloudscapes, Lewis and Clark Bicentennial and Pacific Coral Reef designs received top honors at Creativity 35 — an annual competition honoring bright ideas in graphic design. The USA Philatelic Fall 2004 and Spring 2005 catalogs were also given an award.

In all, USPS earned 20 prizes from a variety of top graphic design publications and organizations. The awards were given by publications and organizations such as Communications Arts magazine, PRINT magazine, American Institute of Graphic Arts as well as Creativity 35.
