Currency design

OBJECTIVE:

Redesign currency, include all bill variations. 

SOLUTION:

The Swiss Franc has always featured beautiful design. Although it is beautiful, the current iteration of the Franc features French, Italian, and German artists, engineers, architects, etc. The nationalities of these people reflect the different languages spoken in various regions of Switzerland. I wanted to find a design solution that would relate all of the bills to all of the people, rather than the French having the 200 franc bill, the Germans having the 1000 franc bill, etc. 

The one thing that unites all of the nationalities is the love of their country, so I created a series of bills featuring different parts of Switzerland known for their beauty. There are several security features, including raised print, patterned watermarks, serial numbers, security threads, and textured paper. 

**Since the creation of this project, the Swiss have decided to release new banknotes that remove nationalities and focus on geography. They are not yet in circulation.**
