The brief was to design a stamp that reflects the positive thoughts connected to creating new ideas and innovation. The word Austria (Österreich) and the value of the stamp (62 Cent) were mandatory design elements.
For new ideas and innovation you have to part from known patterns. The concept behind my design is that if you look at the stamps in a sheet you will see a pattern. On detaching a single stamp you symbolically break it.
During the process of creating one experiences “highs” and “lows” which is depicted by the stylized weather map.
