HUMANIA has been launched with a currency design initiative, inviting designers to tell their story by capturing a moment in time from the COVID-19 pandemic and depicting it visually in the form of a banknote or coin. These designs will help us remember and celebrate those special people who demonstrated an exceptional degree of courage, humanity and solidarity and directly contribute to raising funds to help societies most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
To date we have received several HUMANIA design projects and we wish to sincerely thank these people and their organisations for demonstrating a true sense of solidarity and wishing to give back to society by telling their story via piece of HUMANIA artwork.
On behalf of HUMANIA and the Global Cash Community, we wish to thank all designers and we look forward to realising the designs together as we move forward to the printing and distribution phases in the initiative.
NEW HUMANIA PROJECT
Solidarity & Vigilance
The Future Opens its Arms to Us
The message in this design is the outlook towards a new world where society harmoniously integrates with nature through the solid foundations of respect for our environment and our community since we are part of a global society.
Sincerity / Home Schooling
Connection, Collective, Communication
Sebastian Freuler & Gregory Syrvet
With the rise of digital communication and social distancing, we seem to be drifting away from the human experiences and connections we knew only a year ago.
Designer: Reto Karrer
KURZ, the industry leader in foil security feature technology for over 30 years, approached the HUMANIA project from a different perspective.
Rather than elaborating a complete design, the KURZ feature development team decided to support and facilitate other HUMANIA designers by developing HUMANIA-specific KINEGRAM® security features. These security elements use different formats and technologies for a seamless integration into each specific artwork.
SURYS, a brand of IN Groupe, is a French technology company providing anti-counterfeiting solutions essentially based on optical and digital sciences. SURYS offers solutions to ensure that identity documents, banknotes and fiduciary documents are easy to authenticate and hard to counterfeit. The Covid-19 pandemic is the first truly global crisis that has changed the personal, professional, social, economic and simply human landscape and we have obviously decided to take part to HUMANIA as part of our responsibility. Therefore SURYS has developed a dedicated Moov™ thread and patch, two security features that were exclusively designed to make this project a real piece of art, for a sustainable reason!
