When I think of bank notes, I think or ornate and old fashioned typography. You sort of take this for granted. However, there is a trend amongst designers at the moment to use sans serifs where contemporary bank note design is concerned. Below are some images of re-designed bank notes from New Zealand, which feature sophisticated sans serif fonts. I thought it would be a good idea to take inspiration from these, because I don't want my designs to seem clichéd or reminiscent of old fashioned designs. I want my designs to feature a contemporary typeface which has some subtle traditional qualities to it.
