Kyle Thompson : Inspiring : Hopeful : Positive : Dollar ReDe$ign

“I sought inspiration in numerous areas of American culture and history, and eventually decided to focus on the philosophers and political thinkers (i.e. Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, Charles de Montesquieu, among others) who inspired the Founding Fathers. I chose this for several reasons, the most important being that I feel that a new system of US currency should be hopeful and positive, while simultaneously reminding citizens and the world at large of the ideals on which the United States was originally founded. The bills vary in size and have alternating notches for the visually impaired. The lower right corner of the bill's shape is a curvature based on the golden mean, which is meant to give the bill a powerfully distinctive appearance as compared to other currencies, as well as echoing an age of idealism and humanistic thought.”
