Andreas Lie Merges Animals And Their Homes In Double Exposure Photographs

Andreas Lie (Instagram) makes animal art via the effect that scared anyone who has ever had a film camera – double exposure. His work combines pictures of animals with their natural surroundings, resulting in fox, wolf or bear shaped windows into the forests that they inhabit. It’s an interesting idea, getting you to consider not just the animals themselves, but also their surroundings. It could be considered as a take on “forest for the trees”, illustrating that we usually don’t think about the animals when we see landscape shots of forests. You can buy some of his art on Society6 store

A New Design for Norway Passports

Seems Norway can't stop being the most expensive country in Europe they need more attention. Last time they drew it with innovative Money Banknotes design and not long ago they released a new update of the National Passport design.Oslo based studio Neue won the competition by giving a modern, simple, but still attractive new design as a result. Titled ”The Norwegian Landscape,” this design shows nature as the “essential part of the Norwegian identity and tradition” as Neue Design Studio puts it.

Norway's New Banknotes

Last week it was revealed that Oslo-based design agency Snøhetta had jointly won a competition to redesign the Norwegian banknote. The Central Bank of Norway announced on October 7 two winner proposals for the design of the new banknotes. Snøhetta’s design will be the foundation for the backsides of the notes, while The Metric System’s design will be the starting point for the fronts.

Backsides by Snøhetta

"When contrasts come together, as when soft meets hard or digital meets analog, a dynamic is created. Our cubical pattern first of all represents pixels; our times visual language."
