This year a design competition was held by the Norwegian government to update the nation’s passports and identity documents. The winning designs came from Oslo-based Neue Design Studio, which created a modern minimalist look with some very cool secret features.
The coral red, robin’s egg blue and pale gray covers will certainly stand-out from the typical passport, but the most intriguing design features are on the inside. The passport pages are decorated with beautiful Norwegian mountain and fjord scenes. When the passports are held under UV light, the landscapes turn from day to night and reveal hidden text and floating images evocative of Norway’s northern lights.
