Participating in the “Dollar ReDe$isn Project”, Dowling | Duncan (UK and San Fran) have submitted a very interesting design concept that explores the vertical format. I also like the choice of content—from Native American imagery to the Bill of Rights. Beautiful typography but I’m missing a certain degree of intricacy I’ve come to love about currency design. Dowling | Duncan – Dowling Duncan redesign the US bank notes.
Check out the results of the Swiss National Bank currency design competition held back in 2005. Feels a bit “photoshopped” for my tastes but there is a richness and complexity that is working well.
