U.S. Currency Redesign

Ode to Architecture

Key Considerations
A project to redesign the U.S. currency as we know it. The currency must remain the same size as current bills and include all required information. My design featured significant American buildings and monuments on each denomination, along with the architects who built them. The $20 bill honors the Gateway Arch and exploration, designed by Eero Saarinen, while the $100 bill features the Statue of Liberty, symbolizing freedom and designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi.

The fifty stars in the top corner pay homage to the American flag while also serving as the bill's primary security feature. Once printed in its final state, these stars will be holographic, enhancing both their visual appeal and anti-counterfeiting measures.
