Passports & banknotes

What I really like in my job is the design for a purpose, not just for the beauty of art. So designing a very usuful thing like passeport or bank notes is very interesting. I want to highlight several projects I discover recently...

 

Norway passport by Neue

 

Neue wins the design competition to design the new official ID document of Norway, and they develop the concept of landscape... For security purpose, pages are covered in colorful UV-reactive images that can only be seen under a blacklight.

Canadian passeport

 

As for the Norway passport, the pages of Canadian one are covered in colorful UV-reactive images and the result is great. The “secret” UV images are cleverly incorporated into the parts of each page that are visible under normal lighting so that the two complement each other when seen under UV light. These images, along with a biometric chip in the back of the passport, are all security measures designed to ensure that duplicating or forging a passport would be as difficult and complicated as possible.

 

So much into glow in the dark inks since we try it on the calendar.

USA banknotes proposal by Travis Purrington

 

I am not sure USA are ready to change their banknotes, but I guess it would be interesting to have some colors and different sizes !

Paris is always a good idea

I am not living in Paris, as a lot of followers seems to think... I am just there often as it is just at 3 hours by train from home ! I appreciate it only because it is not my everyday life.. What I love by "living" in a city even for some days is to LIVE it... working from different places, looking for different inspiration... This city is so inspiring ! Will be back home soon.

 

Yesterday I went to the Cité Architecture & Patrimoine to see the superb exhibition "Revoir Paris" about the city today and tomorrow by François Schuiten et Benoît Peeters; and had the nice surprise to discover the other one about Viollet-Le-Duc - Architect's visions ! Fascinating !
