‘Pop Culture Postage’ 80s Stamps by Clark Orr

February 24, 2017

Clark Orr is a Florida-based designer / illustrator who’s done branding, identity or design work for a who’s who of cool outfits, ranging from Benny Gold and Gas Monkey Garage to Hatfield & McCoy Whiskey and Nike. His latest solo exhibition, “Pop Culture Postage,” reimagines the 80s as stamps, and it includes some of our favorite pieces of Orr’s work. Endor via speeder for postage of 50. Freddy Kruger on a twenty cent stamp. Jason Voorhees with a cleverly positioned thirteen. Each of Orr’s fictional postage stamps beautifully meld iconic subject matters and cool design in a way that’s both minimalistic and gallery-worthy. Orr’s “Pop Culture Postage” exhibition is up at Gallery 1988 in LA, but a selection of the works can be purchased online HERE. Check out them out and see how many you can guess without looking at the names.
