“The Dollar ReDe$ign Project hopes to bring about change for everyone. We want to rebrand the US Dollar, rebuild financial confidence and revive our failing economy. ”
So says the about us section of this website.
It seems they touched a nerve. There were lots of contest entries, and they are really fun to review! Makes me actually want to see some color on our sad monochromatic wild wild west moneys.
The winning redesign got 7,380 votes! and second place still got a whopping 4,688 votes! It ain’t American Idol numbers, but it’s pretty darn good.
As a graphic design project, it seems pretty fun too. I bet a lot of graphic design programs will add this project into their curriculum next year…
