The Dollar Redesign Project

This is a pretty cool project for people interested in art and design. The Dollar ReDe$ign Project asked people to submit their ideas for completely designing U.S. currency…

There are some really neat and cool looking designs, and I particularly like some of the innovations such as different size bills for different denominations, and  a switch to a vertical design based on how we actually carry and use money. A lot of these just look plain cool, and some are pretty humorous. And, well, some are just ugly.

Still, if I were teaching an art or design class, or maybe even economics, I think this is a project that I would assign. The site’s worth checking out. Below are some of my favorites…
