How Robert198 started their print or packaging design journey
We are a newsletter company that reports on political and economic developments worldwide. We are concerned about current economic tendencies to inflate national money supplies, and are using a simulated U.S. $1,000,000 bill in a marketing campaign to drive home the fact that inflation may soon mean that large-denomination bills will possibly make their appearance.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our target audience is people who are likewise concerned about economic developments, and who would be likely to respond to a message addressing their concerns and telling them how to safeguard their assets.
The size of the bill must be 6.7 x 15.6 cm. It must have the general appearance of a genuine bill while being an obviously non-negotiable note. The sample bill in the attached file makes use of the Statue of Liberty and the U.S. Capital building. Those would be desirable, but other images that possess the proper gravity would be considered. The intricate designs around the borders must be done with the same general appearance of a genuine bill. Likewise, the entire effect must be very realistic -- the fake nature of the bill being conveyed by the central images and the fact that no U.S. $1,000,000 bills exist. (The sample bill also has a seal with "The Right to Bear Arms," which is obviously not a part of any negotiable currency note.) The colors must be realistic, also. The final design will likely need to be transmitted in a high-resolution format.
