modern currency

50 100 200 Norges nye seddelserie: havet - utstillingskatalog 1000Let’s face it, compared to the rest of the world US currency is boring — all the same color, all the same size (I actually like that part as it makes for a clean wallet). But it could be so much better. Look where Norway is heading come 2017.

These pixelated images of Norwegian coastal regions represent a modern take perfect for our digital age. Did you notice how the pixels get larger as the note amount gets larger? Brilliant!

Designed by the multi-disciplinary firm, Snohetta, who recently designed the World Trade Center Memorial Pavillion in NYC and a stunning Aesop store in Oslo. Every project these guys do is not only stunning but with purpose. The basis of good design. Me likey.
