Prompted with the aged out design of U.S. currency, A reimagination of the bill was necessary. Given the limitations: amounts of colors, typographic hierarchy, while still creating a textured, legible currency.
The goal of this exercise was to strip the bills to their foundation and build from there. Creating a clear design that transcends the tradition of currency design. The faces on the notes were chosen to represent those who have made America what it is today. On that notion, the project was guided on a path of including significant figures within U.S. History. Utilizing tints of a color enabled more options and created a monochromatic approach to the design. A familiar color palette permitted the playing of textures, and imagery.
