Congratulations to Hannah Perry, Senior Architect at D5, for being shortlisted with her private entry into Dezeen's competition for a post Brexit UK passport.
Dezeens unofficial Brexit passport design competition received over 200 entries from 34 different countries. The youngest entrant was 12 years old and the oldest was 83. Most submissions were from architects and designers but there were also entries from non-designers, students, retired people and unemployed people. Nine designs, including Hannah Perry’s most impressed the judges. The winner will be announcement on the 11th April.
“What defines the United Kingdom and what is the purpose of a passport?”
These two questions informed Hannah’s entry, who responds with a document celebrating both the island geography of the UK and the joy of travel.
A perforated map of Great Britain and Northern Ireland features on the matt blue front cover. Inside, each visa page has a pastel pattern based on a section of coastline overlaid with a travel-related quotation from a famous Briton, including this one from Robert Louis Stevenson: “There are no foreign lands. It is the traveller only who is foreign.”
