MOAM x PostNL
Young artists designed the December stamps of the year 2017
In 2017, MOAM collaborated with PostNL to give young, upcoming talents the opportunity to design this years’ annual December holiday stamps. The personal Christmas stories of Dutch celebrities like Lieke van Lexmond, Tim Hofman and Anita Witzier inspired the young artists in the creation of their artwork for the stamp. PostNL has a rich and lengthy history of high-profile stamps. Famous artists and celebrated designers have created tiny works of art in the form of stamps in the past decades. This year the December stamps are extra special because of its reproduction quantity. PostNL expects to deliver over 85 million Christmas cards.
All artists and Dutch celebrities are nominated and linked by MOAM. MOAM selected the following duo’s:
Nouchka Huijg & Anita Witzier
Adrian en Gidi & Ruth Jacott
Lieke van der Vorst & Loretta Schrijver
Loutje Hoekstra & Lieke van Lexmond
Anne Claire de Breij & René en Natasja Froger
