Oslo based studio, Neue, has been awarded the task of redesigning the Norwegian passport. I’m not sure if these designs are final, or if it’s just concept, but they’re wonderful. More governments should embrace great design like this, especially the US.
In 1973, Fritz Gottschalk designed these postage stamps for the Canada Post to celebrated the meeting of the main organizations involved in earth exploration. Beautiful.
Gottschalk is a renowned Swiss designer that founded the agency, Gottschalk+Ash International, and is widely known for designing the Swiss passport. I can’t seem to find an image online of his passport design, if anyone has one I’d love to see it. Gottschalk+Ash International is also responsible for two of lovely theater posters: one and two.
