HUMANIA Designs

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.Ā

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.

I consider cash to be the most sincere of payment methods: it is sensory, engaging us with touch and visuals; it is face-to-face, local; the point of exchange is more than financial, it is Human.

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.

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 KINEGRAMĀ® security features. These security elements use different formats and technologies for a seamless integration into each specific artwork.
