Interesting. In the website Numismaster.com, Richard Giedroyc of World Coin News reports that the Philippines may just change the design of its currency. This reminds me of that campaign years ago to redesign the American dollar, resulting in some really fabulous ideas.
(See other U.S. dollar ideas in the Dollar ReDe$sign Project.)
Since my brain wasn't working at the office, I decided to give the whole currency redesign thing a quick and rough whisk. Here's what I came up with--a still quite conservative take on our 20-peso bill. (click on the image to enlarge)
Or a "what-if" 2000-peso bill. (click on the image to enlarge)
Why don't you have a go at it? Whether you're a designer or not, see where your imagination takes you. I can imagine some of you doing something really breathtaking, while some might go the satirical route. (Can you design a bill made out of smoke?)
When you're done, do share!
