The Brixton Pound

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Graphic Design / Applied Print Graphics / 2012

Brixton heroes, urban art and architectural detail combine to reflect the dynamic past and present of one of London’s most vibrant areas – as the world’s first urban complementary currency points to its future. Balancing expected currency motifs with state-of-the-art production techniques, these notes are both an advert for Brixton’s amazing diversity, and two-fingers to the pedestrian paper the rest of us have to carry in our wallets. Need to borrow a Ziggy anyone?
