Last month, students in Jason Santa Maria’s Communicating Design class at SVA were assigned the task of designing their own local currency. Inspired by Ithaca Hours and BerkShares, students pulled a neighborhood out of a hat, and were asked to research their neighborhood to determine what characteristics should be represented on its currency. A great project with some pretty awesome results.

The Chelsea currency is really interesting. I appreciate the use of coins.
