Sep 18 - Amazing New Possible Designs For The Dollar Bill

Why a vertical format? "When we researched how notes are used we realized people tend to handle and deal with money vertically rather than horizontally," they note on the Dollar ReDe$ign Project's website. "You tend to hold a wallet or purse vertically when searching for notes. The majority of people hand over notes vertically when making purchases. All machines accept notes vertically. Therefore a vertical note makes more sense."

Mark Gartland submitted the entry below, entitled "America Today." The $50 bill features (pictured below) Sacagawea, the native American Indian who acted as Lewis and Clark's interepreter and guide. Noting the "cosmetic drabness" of the current dollar bill, Gartland selected various historical icons from including Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln and President Obama to represent the "diverse fabric" of the U.S.

Self-taught web designer Sean Flanagan submitted "Moving Forward, Looking Back," (below) which hews to many of "base color, size and orientation" of the classic dollar bill, but offers more than a few pleasant upgrades. Flanagan also utilized only American-designed typefaces and says his design would require at least "three different layers of solid ink," a preemptive strike against counterfeiting.

If these money makeovers weren't enough, The Dollar ReDe$ign Project has even circulated a petition to get the U.S. government to seriously consider their ideas. Which of these designs is your favorite?

I personally think our money could be upgraded. We have relied on the portraits of American presidents/important figures for nearly a century now. None of the current figures were even alive in the 20th Century, and we are currently in the 21st Century. All of the men are the currency are important figures in American history. Furthermore, most had a hand in setting up how the American banking and currency systems work.

However, it would still be nice to consider a few new portraits/figures/events to go on our currency.

They're crazy would be my guess? or maybe they thought Americans would see Obama on the dollar bill and feel that they HAD to have him on the new currency.
