Chum mach mit 1962 poster designed by Jorg (jurg) Hamburger / Photograpphy by Hans Peter Muhlemann for Eidg Drucksachen und Materialzentrale – Bern Swirzerland

Beautiful poster by Jorg Hamburger. Swiss minialism at it’s finest. I love the kids climbing in the background and how the poles make for a perfect natural grid.

Hamburger (b1935) worked for the design studio of J. R. Geigy and later under Josef Muller Brockmann.

Really love the yellow poster.

the yellow poster goes along the lines of “come on, join in”, its an ad for young ppl to join the gymnastic/sport club. nice find.

Nice – the yellow and black is so striking and as you say the poles make a great grid in the background.

Love Hamburger’s work.

For anyone interested in the design work for Geigy, there is an exhibition on at the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, http://www.museum-gestaltung.ch/ausstellungen/programm.html

There is also a new book published by Lars Müller called Corporate Diversity: Swiss Graphic Design and Advertising by Geigy, 1940-1970

Thanks Jon! I’d love to go to that exhibit. Anyone planning on going? If so, Please take photos if you can.

I need to get that book as well. It sounds awesome!

Nice design work, but it leaves me with bad dodge ball memories.

I’ll send you some pictures next week and I’ll have a look at the book. ;-)

great find, thanks!
