Richard Smith of Think Create Believe has started a new project entitled Dollar ReDe$ign Project in which he asks the public to send in submissions on what they think a redesigned US currency note should look like. He argues that the American Dollar has not really changed since the 1930′s which is more than enough reason to see what people come up with if they had to imagine a new Dollar in circulation.
If you’d like to participate, there’s a small set of rules you must adhere by. Otherwise, the design is pretty much up to you. The deadline for submissions is July 4, 2009 and hopefully there will be a good amount of designs to look over once we get to that date.
The two images below are designs by Michelle Haft who wanted to redesign the Dollar as a way to remind people about what aspects of the economy are affected by it. The colors are lovely, I have to say.
Follow all of the updates to this project and see all new submissions over at the Dollar ReDe$ign Project’s website.
