Here’s How The Euro Would Look If It Was Designed By This Hungarian Student

ADVERTISEMENT

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!

Gorgeous work and it makes so much sense to use these as the drawings for a currency that spans numerous countries. BEAUTIFUL!

I don't know if that was the intention, but the animals move from less to more evolved as the notes increase in value. Cool!

Yes, it seems that way, but I`m not sure I agree that foxes are less evolved than deer!
