Design for the Visually Impaired
Currency Design is perhaps one of the most challenging tasks anyone
could ever take. To encapsulate what a country or region has in
its culture, beliefs, history and achievements can be most difficult.
Retaining technical requirements against counterfeit and durability

We'll take note of the similarities and differences. We will

How currency can be designed to be useable for the visually
The use of themes as a focus for organizing and designing currency
