The purpose of this project was to create fictional currency for a specific location. The name of the bill “Biyuyos” is derived from one of the many slangs in Mexico for money. The front of the bills displays three different well know people in Mexico City, whose names are Cantinflas (Mexican film actor, producer, and screenwriter), Luis Barragan (Mexican architect and engineer), and Matilde Montoya (first female physician in Mexico). The backside of the bill portrays different landmarks in Mexico City such as Palacio de Bellas Artes, Casa Barragan, and UNAM these three represent the three different characters in the front of the bill. The colors are monochromatic, purple for devotion, orange for creativity, and blue-green for growth.
