Currency/Banknotes Design Concept
CYPRIOT POUND REIMAGINED
Creating the design for new banknotes is a demanding task. As well as being complex works of art, they are important security documents that incorporate a range of security features that make them difficult to counterfeit. These features need to be integrated effectively into the banknote without interfering with the aesthetics of the banknote. Once I selected the theme for the banknotes, I can then develop the actual design. Using reference materials such as photographs the designs involve a combination of photographs and digital elements. Because the banknotes are part of a series, a 'family' feel had to be developed through the establishment of common elements. This for example, include consideration of the design structure, line treatments, artwork, placement of sculptures and security features and style and fonts chosen for text and numerals.
