Norway’s New Passport

Grannies get high, Intel's high-tech bangle, Oxford Dictionaries' word of the year and more in our weekly look at the web

Norway’s new passport design is changing the way we view government documents. The Nordic country recently held a contest asking designers to submit their vision for a Norwegian passport that would be beautiful while also appropriate and functional. Oslo-based Neue Design Studio won with their concept titled “The Norwegian landscape,” featuring a simple yet thoughtful design with a focus on the natural beauty the country is known for. We can only hope other countries will follow suit.
