My idea for a new definitive stamp for the UK. I decided to get rid of the Queens head as I felt it was important to  design a stamp that better represents the UK. I went for a typographic approach and soon found that I was able to combine two alphabets. The white circles spell 'UK' in braille which has been punched out so that the indentations can be felt. Sighted and non-sighted can read the same message - a sort of democratic form of communication - which is something that the UK prides itself as being, a democratic country.
