Gottschalk + Ash

Fritz Gottschalk

Poster for the Theatre Company at the St. Lawrence Centre

Gottschalk + Ash was founded in Montreal in 1966 by Swiss-born Fritz Gottschalk and Canadian native Stuart Ash. Independently and collaboratively, the two have racked up numerous design awards and honors over the last 40 years, with highlights that include identity work for Ciba and a re-design of the Swiss passport. Their work shown above is a great example of Swiss precision and a playful, more humanized take on design.

Thanks for the link. Which book is that in the first photo? Also, were did you manage to find images of these posters?

Hey Antonio, I’ll hit you up via email.

These are great! I love how simple shapes and color can have such an intense visual impact.

Hi Dave. What a great post, a super keen collection of G+A’s work. Thanks so much for the linkage.

What beautiful simplicity!

Dave, I’d love to know where the images are from as well. As a Canadian designer, I’ve been looking for a book on Canadian design for some time now.

Hi Dave,

I’d love to know where the images are from as well. As a Canadian designer, I’ve been looking for a reference book with Canadian work in it for some time.

Hey Chris,
The images are from idea magazine #115 1972.
