Graphic design firm Dowling Duncan created a remarkable entry for the Dollar ReDe$ign Project. The series of notes are intended to be both educational and easy to use. Each note uses a black and white image depicting a particular aspect of American history and culture. They are then overprinted with informational graphics or a pattern relating to that particular image.
$1 – The first African American president
$5 – The five biggest native American tribes
$10 – The bill of rights, the first 10 amendments to the US Constitution
$20 – 20th Century America
$50 – The 50 States of America
$100 – The first 100 days of President Franklin Roosevelt.
That is the most colorful money design I’ve ever seen. According to the company, the reason for that is they think it’s a strong way to distinguish one note from another.
I just wonder how much it will cost to make a note like that?
