Designer Michael Tysznik offers an elegant speculative redesign of U.S. currency.
American banknotes are in dire need of a redesign.
Even though the green color of money is deeply interwoven into the
nation’s culture, the need for color differentiation between
denominations has forced the inclusion of color. The recent redesign of
banknotes by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing is poorly executed and aesthetically lacking.
Because the coloring of the current notes is so subtle, it is still
hard to differentiate between denominations by that method alone.
My proposed redesign keeps the culturally important green color of money, but introduces a brightly colored holographic strip into each denomination, making them easy to tell apart. This strip includes embossed dots for the sight-impaired as well, making currency far more accessible.
