“My intention? There has to be a full-colored US flag on every bank note, and there have to be faces of some of the latest idols on them. Let’s stop looking backwards and focus on the future. This is the time where we live. I’ve chosen Steve Jobs, but why not Zuckerberg, Larry Page or Michael Jackson?
The main aspect to me is the following: yes, we could choose a very stylish, fresh looking Dollar note draft, just because it’s a pleasure to our eyes at the moment we see the bank note draft for the first time. But often the print designs are far away from being timeless. I’ve created a long-lasting composition of colors and shapes that avoids being fashionable and therefore never appears antiquated by focusing on the value of the note itself and the colors of the US flag. Because this is what the Dollar note all is about.”
