Hungarian Graphic Design Student Barbara Bernat Redesigns the Euro

The euro is a controversial currency, but one thing that we can agree upon is that this currency might look a lot better if
Hungarian graphic design student Barbara Bernat had anything to say about it.

She created a series of fictional Hungarian euros with beautiful and elegant illustrations of European plants and animals that I would just love to have a wad of in my lonely and empty wallet.

Bernat’s choice to portray plants and animals rather than the gray heads of national dignitaries or the facades of moldy buildings makes for some beautiful money. On Behance, she details how the drawings evolved – they began as drawings and evolved into copperplate etchings, which she used to imitate the intaglio printing process actually used to print money.

Bernat is currently a MA student at the University of West Hungary (this work was her master’s project), so be sure to follow her – she’s probably got a lot more wonderful work coming!
