Design for Hudson Valley Current, an organization with local currency to be used in the Hudson Valley. Currents have the same monetary value as the US dollar and encourage local purchases by keeping money in the community.
Our design process started with bills that would use a Hudson Valley Visionary, for example, Sojourner Truth, Thomas Cole, Eleanor Roosevelt or Pete Seeger. On the back of each bill, there’d be a description of the contribution the person made. Our final designs feature Hudson Valley animals and their habitats, reflecting the diverse and rich ecosystem of the Hudson River Valley.
