The Dollar Redesign Project hosted a contest for US dollars to undergo a makeover. My favorite is below. I would get so crunk with my cash if dollars looked like that. I’d probably get better at organizing my money too. Like, who wouldn’t make it rain for no reason at all if your money looked like this?
Organized by creative strategy consultant Richard Smith, the Dollar ReDe$ign Project is soliciting ideas for the dollar bill of the future. “Our great ‘rival’, the Euro, looks so spanky in comparison it seems the only clear way to revive this global recession is to rebrand and redesign,” the project notes on its website.
Why a vertical format? “When we researched how notes are used we realized people tend to handle and deal with money vertically rather than horizontally,” they note on the Dollar ReDe$ign Project’s website. “You tend to hold a wallet or purse vertically when searching for notes. The majority of people hand over notes vertically when making purchases. All machines accept notes vertically. Therefore a vertical note makes more sense.”
If these money makeovers weren’t enough, The Dollar ReDe$ign Project has even circulated a petition to get the U.S. government to seriously consider their ideas.
