Dezeen reveal shortlist for their Reengineered Post-Brexit Passport competition

When Article 50 was triggered last week it made Brexit a certainty. While others asked about the future of British Manufacturing, trade or travel, architecture and design magazine Dezeen got straight to the point – what next for the Great British Passport!

Today Dezeen revealed the shortlisted of their unofficial Brexit passport design competition.

The competition attracted entries from 34 different countries and entrant ranging from 12 years old to 83.
