I freakin’ love these World Cup Stamps designed by Portuguese studio, Maan. Unfortunately, it’s just a self-project. I’d buy the entire set if they were for sale. They also design some packaging around it, and they put together a Tumblr to showcase all the stamps.
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.
I don’t know about the rest of the world but here in the US are stamps are ugly and cheesy. Would love to hear from people outside the US, especially in Europe, about the design quality of their current stamps.
