u.s. dollar redesign contest
The SF-UK design firm Dowling Duncan wants to put president Obama on redesigned American bank notes. The Obama bill anchors their collection for the Dollar ReDesign Project. Their hypothetical design round up of the bills all have meaning in numbers: Obama is the nations first black president. The teepee on the 5 represents the nations' first five tribes, the Bill of Rights make up the first 10 amendments of the U.S. Constitution for 10, the 20 is a mix of 20th century U.S. images a Ford car, science and astronauts, the 50 is for the 50 states and the 100 dollar bill is notable occurances during FDR's first 100 days in office.
The movement behind the contest is to rebrand Americas image problem and the sagging ecomony. To see more entries for the Dollar ReDesign click here.
