Interesting US Dollar Design
One of my hobbies is to collect the bank notes from all over the world, not a very serious collector but like to check on what is the latest new notes issue from the world.
During this few days public holidays, I have more time to surf on some of my favorite website writing about bank note, one of them is http://www.banknotenews.com and found an article with the above bank notes.
The bank note looks beutiful for me, it seem show 5 US Dollar but this actually is not the official design on USD5, the official design is like the below photo.
So how is this design appear? Actually someone had bring up something call "Dollar ReDe$ign Project" which their purpose stated as,
"The Dollar ReDe$ign Project hopes to bring about change for everyone. We want to rebrand the US Dollar, rebuild financial confidence and revive our failing economy. "
You may check on this website http://richardsmith.posterous.com/tag/dollarredeign to see more other design on this 5 US Dollar which I feel some design is so creative and impressive, it looks nice to be an official design as well.
There are one more website serve similar spirit which is call "Make Your Franklin" on http://makeyourfranklin.com/gallery.html which is more to the the re-design of 100 US Dollar, some of the design may be is just to put a joke on it but seriously I feel some design really have their own distinct quality, enjoy viewing on it.
