Honoring First Responders
Postage Stamp

How might a postage stamp commemorate the contribution of emergency responders to the people of the United States?

I had the privilege to develop the concept for Honoring First Responders, a Forever stamp released in 2018. The final illustration was created by Brian Stauffer, and the design was finished by Antonio Alcalá, art director for the United States Postal Service.
