Norges Bank: The making of Norway's new banknote

If ever there was a model graphic design process, this would be it. Norges Bank released a beautifully shot video which explains the whole design and production process of their brand new bank note from start to finish which is being brought into circulation this year - how frightfully exciting. The new notes follow the chosen theme of "The Sea", with one side featuring nautical themed scenes devised by graphic design studio Metric Design and Terje Tønnessen, with the flip side displaying pixelated motifs developed by Snøhetta. The film is a joy to watch and brings me back to my childhood when this type of care and attention was the formula for good, sustainable worthy design.
