pff.. they have no sense of worth. the bastard offspring of old book covers and luncheon vouchers
I would like to see one with Marilyn Monroe ;)
sizing and positioning concepts are good. design is amateur, looks like a brochure. not illustrative enough. looks like it would come out of a laser printer.
sadly, its the best design out of all of them.
My first impression was - these look like posters, different size is nice (like Euro)
the $20 bill is completely off, illustration-wise.
Also, no fokin' reference to computers or inet or even telephone as 20th century stuff? OMFG
For the rest, all nice, clean and... Swiss. It looks like everything but a note...
"The Dollar ReDe$ign Project hopes to bring about change for everyone. We want to rebrand the US Dollar, rebuild financial confidence and revive our failing economy".
Typically effete, liberal creative response.
Get real jobs, guys.
On a serious note - do these schmucks really think it's a good idea to add a partisan graphic element (the Change logo) to a federal note?.
I'd've thought the perfect response to the brief would be to go with some dynamic representation, where the value of the currency is printed in e-Ink - so you can see the devaluation of your mother money in real time, as the pyramid top leaches away the future's profit. MIght sound expensive now - but look at how many times Zimbabwe's had to reprint its currency these last few years...
I have to agree that this is a load of horseshit. The sort of thing that makes people think designers are a useless waste of money — and they may be right.
I just realised one thing - don't we use more and more "electronic" money? Right now, for almost everything you can pay by using debit/credit card. If the current design works, why fix it. The brand new design will not increase US or other countries credibility nor increase the value / rebuild the confidence.
its nice but it doesn't look like money to me
is money public domain?
I've been saying for a long time we should move towards getting rid of paper receipts. Imagine how much retail stores would save by not having to spend on all that paper.
I'm so sick of seeing Obama face on fucking everything that I'm going to put Lamborghini door on my bloody car tonight.
Instead of Presidents they should put ordinary Americans on the bills. Just completely at random. A simple but powerful message.
