We use money every day, but how many folks are interested in knowing how they are made? Currency is one of the most difficult things to design. And in today’s technologically-driven world, it can be difficult to believe that hundreds of years ago, there were people who began designing the first currencies using the simplest of materials.
The work, hours, and detail that go into every banknote deserve more recognition. For instance, the $100 bill that was released in 2013 took the artist, Brian Thompson, a whopping 40 drafts and 17 years to complete, from concept to release.
So whether you’re making a statement, or just want to prove how detail-oriented you are, hopefully, these currency fonts can help you get there.
