Listen up gang, I’ve been having a think and have come to the irrefutable conclusion that we should all move to Norway. First up we had Snøhetta’s stunning banknote designs and now we find that Neue studio have created new passport covers for Norway’s citizens which are clean, crisp and colourful. The white, red and turquoise covers lead into some beautifully-designed spreads which take their inspiration from the country’s lakes and mountains and the whole thing has personality without feeling gimmicky.
Neue’s entire portfolio is full of really impressive work, and we were equally enamoured by their identity for the country’s Meteorological Institute, built around a simple circle and crooked line logo and rolled out with ease across print, web and even architectural collateral.
