    With all these bills they have been printing and the pending inflation I would think that the government would go back to the traditional layout.

    Where else are they going to put all those zeros on the bill like Mexico ended up doing?

    Oh and I don't think that what SF-UK design firm Dowling Duncan thinks really matters in any decision making capacity for our US currency.

    Uh, I thought it was a requirement that to be on currency you must be dead. I would definitely go for a bill with Reagan on it!

    Agreed--the actual idea behind it is quite cool. Different colors and the vertical arrangement is a really interesting idea. Different sized bills is something we should have done a long time ago. The overall design theme is quite interesting, I think, and I like it a lot.

    Having said that, all of the actual designs suck. Obama? FDR? Seriously? Screw that noise.

    Yes, that suits him just fine.

    What IndianaMatt posted is not what's written in the blog article.

    Apparently some UK design firm decided to take a stab at redesigning US currency. No one asked them to as far as I can tell, and there is nothing officially sanctioned about it at all.
