COULD COMPANIES ISSUE THEIR OWN CURRENCY?

It’s no secret that a good majority of Fortune 500 companies are raking in more revenue than most countries. Could these companies be large enough to issue their own currency? Paris-based graphic designer Jade Dalloul used images of founders from Google, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft to name a few, to conceptualize what their individual currencies would look like. The designer furthermore imagined the currency with worldwide influences, giving it both vertical and horizontal reading directions. “eventually I chose the uniform scale derived from the US dollar bill for all units, and used the same ratio width/height originally found in the euro, ” said Dalloul.
