Currency is a self-initiated study that I created on monetary value in the graphic design field. I turned the study into an exhibition for design non-profit Practise Makes Practice in downtown Atlanta. I gave a talk on my design process and held a Q&A on opening night.

 

 

The Study

We've transitioned from a currency system that consisted of objects with inherent value to a currency system of symbolic value. What does that mean in today's world for us? For brands?
