Currency Symbol

Early Sketches:


Final Product:



For our “create a currency symbol” assignment, I made the dollar sign look like a swimming pool.

The reason that I wanted to take the swimming pool sketch further was because, to me it was the only design that really symbolised “wealth”. I think that to my generation having a swimming pool is a sign of affluence. Apart from the monetary value, I think the design also relates to spending. To truly enjoy a swimming pool, you gotta have time on your hands. It is common to see people with money having a lot more time to longue around and use their leisurely time by the pool.
