Re-envisioning Cash

I love this Huffington Post story about graphic designer Travis Purrington, who wondered: what would our money look like if we dropped the dead white guy theme? Here’s a summary of the project:

As part of a master’s thesis design project at the Basel School of Design in Switzerland, Purrington developed new versions of U.S. currency. He based his designs on his study of other world currencies and America’s currency history.

The resulting bills use imagery from the arts, nature, and science. Specifically Purrington samples the DNA helix, farmland, circuit boards, and the art of Alexander Calder. Beautiful!
