Age Appropriate : Julia Perry : Dollar ReDe$ign


“As a student I participated in a Dollar Redesign project at The Pacific Northwest College of Art here in Portland, Oregon. For each denomination I chose an American of corresponding age. I relied on my background in American Cultural Studies to make gender and nationality choices that didn’t reinforce negative stereotypes. I chose to create decorative elements that reflect both American folk traditions and simple, modern patterns. The arrow motif is a nod to the fact that money is always in a state of motion.”


Julia Perry is a “strategist and problem-solver” from Oregon who is interested in “making creative, thoughtful and effective design.” You can view more of her work here.
