Złoty Currency Symbol Re-Design
The American Dollar sign is one of the most well-known currency sign that anyone can recognize. Many countries lack a solid and effective currency symbol, such as the country of Poland. Poland has an abbreviation for their currency, Złoty, and present money and currency as ex. 25 zł. It was my task to redesign this currency sign and create a more modern approach using techniques and design choices from the American Dollar and the European Euro, thus creating my final design.
The "'Z" shape was created using a grid ratio, and is an original created letter, not derived from a typeface. 3D effect was added for visual effect.
Additional letters created using same design for the Złoty Symbol custom typeface.
Sketches for the development stage of the redesign.
