We’re excited to report that Crisis Group’s President Louise Arbour has been honored in a new Difference Makers stamp series from the Canadian Post. From their site:
Canada Post honours four outstanding and well-known Canadians in this new stamp series, featuring images of Rick Hansen, Michael J. Fox, Sheila Watt-Cloutier and Louise Arbour.
According to stamp design manager Alain Leduc, the unusual approach to portraiture has deeper meanings. The stamps, designed by Montreal’s Paprika Design, show intimate close-ups of each of the four Difference Makers, created with a strategically-placed series of small dots. This unique form of digital pointillism carries with it a subtle symbolism—the dots coming together to create a view of the whole in the same way that each of these individuals employs a range of experience, knowledge, skills and talents to get the results they seek.
