Redesigning the American Dollar Bill...

When it comes to currency [moola] the American Bill is pretty 'boring' compared to other countries. Take the Euro for instance, with its bright, beautiful colors and varying dimensions.... now look at your money. Pretty lame huh...? ....now hand over your boring/ugly money to me.... please?
The Dollar ReDe$ign Project has provided some interesting and beautiful options that may make their way into my wallet our wallets... The design series below was the 'leading vote-getter' in this years competition. This vertical design was submitted by Dowling Duncan.

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."
