Money shapes and is shaped by the society at large, and the last century has seen far more transformation in money than any other to date since its invention. With the rise of IT, money has increasingly become an abstraction, subjected to power shifts with authority to create, move & define it. Monetary chaos is a new & pivotal force in our economy, and it will change the way we work & live as technology changes the very nature of money.

The New York Times commissioned us to create the cover of the Money Issue, illustrating the fast changing monetary dynamics the world is deadling with. The creative concept was quite literal: to visually blend the old with the new, representing chaos with graphic disruption. Using analog & digital tools, we manipulated a physical greenback with a scanner & pixelated segments to create our graphic treatment.
