In 2021 NZ Post brought CourierPost, Pace and Rural Post under the single banner of NZ Post, with a new logo and refreshed visual identity. The new NZ Post logo is a symbol consisting of a circle, intersected by two parallel lines to form a unique stylised ‘P’, evocative of roads, tracks, and networks. The new deep blue, partnered with the historical red amplify in concert to create something familiar, yet distinctive.
In these six collectable stamps, released to celebrate the new visual identity, the designers have reinterpreted the new NZ Post logo’s forms and colours to create a series that represents connection, movement and energy.
