Portrait of Maria Gadh, STOCKHOLMIA 2019 Art Director

Maria Gadh

The STOCKHOLMIA 2019 graphic design addressing ”The International Celebration of the 150th Anniversary of The Royal Philatelic Society London” is implemented. At the activities performed in conjunction with the international launch in New York on 30 May, the graphic design was well received with complimentary positive feedback from our international audience. Plenty of positive comments have been received from philatelists and non-philatelists since then. We have herewith the pleasure to give a portrait of our Graphic Designer, Maria Gadh, who is the Art Director.

Maria, how did it come that you work for STOCKHOLMIA 2019?

- By an amazing coincidence I found myself in a meeting with Exhibition Manager Jonas Hällstrom. After listening to the exciting tale of the postage stamp's history and the upcoming exhibition, I was on board for the ride.

What is your graphic design background?

- I have studied at YRGO among other schools and now I'm taking a course at Berghs. Today I freelance as a graphic designer and illustrator with various clients.

Do you have any previous connections with philately and the hobby?

- I have a fleeting memory of a folder with stamps in my younger days, but it's not until now that I begin to understand the delight and extent of this hobby.

Maria, your first performance for STOCKHOLMIA was its logotype – tell us about the logotype?

- I knew I wanted to have the stamp included, somehow. And I wanted to make it look grand, after all it's a century and a half since the first philatelic society started, but keeping it with a modern touch. The corner of a stamp was the perfekt choise, it was a crown. The crown as a link to the Swedish Coat-of-Arms - Three Crowns, but also a tribute to The Royal Philatelic Society London. The stamp is there, you just have to look a bit closer.

Further to the seven illustrations addressing the event, what are your thoughts?

- I wanted to create an interesting scene of the exhibition and of the City of Stockholm, without giving too much away. I want to give the visitor the opportunity of a sneak peek of the event so that they can explore on there own when the time comes. The structure of the scenes are simple and to the point and the colours reminisce and honours the Swedish flag.


We are very happy to have Maria as member of the Management Team, and she will be important for the development and progress of our marketing along the way up to showtime.
