One of the best things about this project was getting to draw all the titles. Every single one of them is deliciously quirky but The Invaders’ title font is a work of art.

The Invaders (1967-1968): Architect David Vincent happens upon an alien invasion and spends 43 episodes spanning two series trying to convince others that Earth is under threat.

The stamp design, poster and text are from one of my favourite student projects. Each stamp depicts an iconic science fiction TV series from the 1960s. For a recap on the project, click here.

    1. I believe that was one of the clues, yes… I really don’t know much about this one — it’s the only series (of the 12 stamps) that I can’t remember watching.

  1. Yes, the font is the best! I didn’t watch this one either. They must not have thought it so worthy of reruns as some of the others, at least here in the states (or maybe it was on during my naptime or something :-)).
