Designing Local Currency

When I was assigned the Meatpacking District for my designing local currency project I knew I wanted to incorporate its rich and varied past in my designs. I began my research by taking a walk through the historic Meatpacking District neighborhood. I created a set of five bills that reflect the period of the neighborhood’s history when it was a functional slaughterhouse district set in contrast to the 1980s and 90s when the neighborhood was revived as a center for nightlife in Manhattan.
