Astonishing! The ‘Art’ of Bank Note Design (by committee) : Treasury Dept Podcast

Watch this snoring podcast from the Treasury Dept on how the new $100 bill was ‘designed’ (by committee). It’s astonishing the amount of time and effort the Bureau and the Treasury spent on developing their ideas. Really. But what did the research show? That people can’t deal with change and are unable to let go of the past. Get comfy now because this really is a ‘design for dummies’ show and tell. It’s also important to note that not one actual designer was consulted in the project’s development, in fact the printer was left in charge of that responsibility. Need we say any more.
