While many currencies around the world feature prominent economists, Norway’s new currency features a fresh take on their natural sources of economic prosperity…
While cash transactions might be declining, physical currency still plays an important role in national identity. This year, Norway introduced a new look for its 50, 100, 200, 500, 1,000 Kroner bills. Designed by creative agency Snøhetta together with Metric Design, they tell stories of prosperity and the significance of the sea in Norwegian national identity. The notes have since been incorporated with Norway’s coastal landscape through pixelated, color-blocked snapshots.
