Show Me The Money

The theory is that design can help to bring about a change. Seem right to me. To put the theory to a test, Richard Smith, a designer in New York, decided with the economy in the tanks, it was time to redesign the US $1 bill. The idea was started and has taken off in the form of the Dollar ReDe$ign Project. Many designs are wonderful and serious but humor pops up at times in several of designs. If you have your own designs, send it along to the site, as more are welcome. See more and learn more about this project to give us all a new look, new pride, and new hope through the redesign of the dollar bill. A short video interview with Richard Smith about this project can be viewed below. The Dollar ReDe$ign Project can be viewed at this link.
