HOW TO ENTER
Brief: Simply redesign the US Dollar bill in any way you think appropriate and submit to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for review.
Keep in mind that first and foremost this a branding project so that means we are looking for ideas that define or redefine what America stands for. And we want to see how you would best represent that, visually, through the redesign of the US currency.
We are also looking for ideas on ways to improve counterfeiting concerns, long term, as well as ways to differentiate the various denominations for the visually impaired – either through the use of varying colors, differentiating sizes, use of textures, braille and so on.
Guidelines: For instance your ideas could be based around themes such as national icons, heroes, symbols, monuments, landscape, architecture, people, the meaning of money, political issues, the constitution for instance, the future of money even – be that physical, virtual or digital.
But really we’re just looking for really great ideas. So don’t get bogged down in hypothetical technicalities, or trying to truly answer the ‘brief’ because ultimately a great idea is a great idea and anything is possible if we want to make it happen.
Where to Submit: email your ideas to email@example.com
Technical Stuff: all submissions should be single jpgs of each denomination, each 72dpi and 600px wide max, please.
Rules and Regulations: Please also include a 50 word explanation of your inspiration and design rationale, as well as a brief one line bio specifying your name, geographic location, and your current occupation. Please note that we have the right to veto any work submitted. And all proposals are submitted at the author’s own risk.
Legal: Absolutely none of the work submitted can be used as legal tender. Anywhere. Anytime. Anyhow. All copyright remains the property of those submitting their proposals, ie the ‘author’, and all proposals are submitted at the author’s own risk. Plus all work must belong to you, the author.
