Neue Design Studio's proposal, based on the theme The Norwegian Landscape, was selected by a jury earlier this month as the winning scheme to overhaul Norway's travel documents for "the simplicity of the solution". "Of the submissions for the new Norwegian passports and ID cards, The Norwegian Landscape has been chosen as the best concept," said the jury's statement. "It both illustrates the Norwegian identity and makes sure the passport will be viewed as a document of high value. " Inside the passports, double-page spreads are illustrated with minimal images of landscapes from different parts of the country.

"Nature has always been an essential part of the Norwegian identity and tradition, as well as being a key fundament for our welfare," said Neue Design Studio. 3D Paper Art By Maud Vantours. A weekly illustrated atlas. 17 Practical Uses for Lego in Your Everyday Life.
