So, the team put out a call for new passport designs, receiving over 200 entries from around the world exploring what could happen to the classic burgundy document. Here are some of the finalists.

2. Ian Macfarlane

All of the visa pages in Macfarlane's passport are completely blank.

3. Tim Gambell & Alfons Hooikaas

4. Tim Gambell & Alfons Hooikaas
