How The Euro Would Look If It Was Designed By A Hungarian Student
The Euro! Love it or hate it, but many newer European Union members dream about it. Barbara Bernat made her dream come true by designing a concept for Hungarian euros! The baknotes are covered with images of European animals and the flipside has images of plants. Overall, it has a interesting mix of both minimalistic and very complex design – the banknotes don’t feature much besides the drawings, yet these themselves are very detailed.
“Hungarian paper money” was Barbara’s MA (she’s a Graphic Design student in University of West Hungary) project. She made ten etched plates and used the somewhat-complex incision printing method – the same one used for printing money!
Now, paper Euros are the same across the EU, but one can dream!
