Re-created Australian 10 dollar bill – Front

Inspired by Bitcoin, I thought I’d recreate digital currency. Let me share my recreation of an Australian $10 bill.

On the front of my recreation, Old Tom – an aborigine; aboriginal art; and a boomerang honor Australia’s past, while on the backside, an image of the Sydney Opera House celebrates accomplishments and future possibilities. I kept the look and feel of the original Australian $10 bill, but added my interpretation of the country and it’s imagery.

I made the dimensions for my recreated Australian $10 bill: 6″ x 2.5″ – to match the dimensions of an American bill, making it easy to fit into wallets, international vending machines and ATM’s.

I ensured that the text for the country name and denomination amount became big, prominent, clear and easy to spot.

I used anymaking.com to create an engraved effect on the Sydney Opera House image.

line patterns
I copy and pasted my renderings of Adobe Illustrator line designs into Photoshop to add complexity to the background. I also used gradients to add further background, anti-counterfeit complexity. Furthermore, I included circle patterns to symbolize unity and wholeness.

I used the font, Chiller, for Old Tom’s signature and Sverige Script Decorated for Jørn Utzon’s signature.
