Norway Designs Most Stylish Passport Ever

The passport is an unglamorous thing; a necessary, functional piece of kit just that you mainly think about in terms of not wanting to lose it.

But Norway have changed the game with this beautiful new design. The government ran a national competition to create a new look for their country's passport, with Oslo design studio Neue emerging triumphant. Not only is it bold, clean and simple, it also incorporates visual elements of the Norwegian landscape quite beautifully.

The cover comes in three colours: white, turquoise or red (for immigrant, diplomat and standard), with the inside booklet depicting a fjord (in normal light) and the Northern lights under UV. In addition, there's a new Identity Card design which, again incorporates some Norwegian scenery. There's currently no release date set, but it should be sometime within the next two years.

The new passport and ID card follows on from the newly designed Kroner notes which won widespread acclaim.

What would a new UK passport look like? Maybe the rolling hills of the Lake District, or London's city skyline? Or perhaps simply a more realistic taste of Britain: a 'rail replacement bus' sign to warn visitors of their likely first experience of our great nation.
