The Future Of Money

A concept for a future banknote/plastic cryptocurrency wallet. This is our answer to the missing link between paper money and cryptocurrency. It was also an opportunity to showcase our security document design credentials: the project combined multiple print processes and specialist techniques.

TYPOGRAPHY

Our design is a nationally-issued plastic Bitcoin wallet, with a personalized portrait. It blends currency and ID. Anything can become a Bitcoin wallet, as long as it has a sending and receiving address. Inevitably, the transparency of cryptocurrency will become merged with biometric ID.

We like to include multiple print processes in our work. The complexity of our designs ensures that they can’t be copied. At the same time, complexity can make a pleasing aesthetic.

As well as a hand-engraved portrait, the design also includes illustration, pattern, holography, and embedded blockchain technology.

  • Finally! It's here - the £100 Series F :) The last BOE £100 banknote was withdrawn from circulation in 1945. Three quarters of a century later, this design brings the mythical Bank of England £100 to life…

The colour is predominantly green, with a gold-yellow hue. The size is a massive 163mm x 90mm. The front features the usual elements of the F Series, with a few distinct changes.

The back features Doctor Samuel Johnson, the English writer, playwright, essayist, moralist, critic, and philanthropist, who made a lasting contribution to English literature. Johnson’s Dictionary of the English Language was published in 1755, and has been acclaimed as one of the greatest single achievements of scholarship.

Johnson’s portrait is a variation of James Heath’s original engraving. It is accompanied by a vignette of Johnson and his biographer, Boswell, details from the Dictionary’s original frontispiece, and an illustration of Johnson’s London home at Gough Square, now a Grade I listed building and museum.

Also included is Johnson’s lengthy quote: “The fountain of content must spring up in the mind,
and he who hath so little knowledge of human nature
as to seek happiness by changing anything but his own disposition,
will waste his life in fruitless efforts
and multiply the grief he proposes to remove.” This unique design is intended for novelty use only. We have purposely missed out any security features, including serial numbering, as we are aware that the design is VERY REALISTIC! #banknote #banknotes #banknotedesign #banknotescollection #banknotesforsale #banknotescollector #banknotestore
