#3Novices: Design Museum exhibits Dezeen’s Brexit passport competition winners

The winner of Dezeen’s Brexit passport design competition, plus eight shortlisted entries, are on show at London’s Design Museum until 14 August.

The passports are displayed in a wood-lined gallery in the large atrium of the museum’s new home – the former Commonwealth Institute building in Kensington, which was remodelled by John Pawson and OMA.

Each passport is presented on a custom-made plinth designed by graphic design studio Alexander Boxill.

The unofficial competition, which was organised by Dezeen to provoke people into thinking about the UK’s identity after Brexit, was won by Scottish graphic designer Ian Macfarlane.

His winning proposal stands in the centre of the installation. It features a tonal gradient on its cover, with the blue upper half seeping over the maroon lower half.

The jury, which included Design Museum director Deyan Sudjic, described the simple design as poetic, powerful, elegant and ambiguous.

The second-placed design, by London industrial design studio Special Projects, reinvents the traditional passport for the clubbing generation. The studio gave it an iridescent cover, a shoulder strap and visa pages featuring foreign phrases.

Tim Gambell and Alfons Hooikaas came third with a proposal for personalised passports, that aimed to do away with the notion of nationality.
