So here's the first of what could be many revisions! For now, I'm just going to focus on spot & colour changes. I'm not sure that I'm improving all that much, but I thought I'd take a stab at making the line work a little harder as a group. I may in fact revert to the spots originally chosen, but thought it would be valuable to look at some alternates.
Here's the design as it was:
And here's a revised spot/colour choice for a few of the chips:
#1 I'm not sure if this spot pattern is even a possibility, but I wanted to simplify the 25˘ chip even further by reducing the number of spots, that way it doesn't seem to mimic the $1 as much.
#2 I've changed the spot colour on the $5 to make it "pop" a little more. The mustard was really good though, and I may end up changing it back. Please let me know what you think.
#3 The $25 needed to change, as I felt the spot pattern was too similar to the $1000. I find this to be much more appealing.
#4 One of the early submissions for the $100 that I really liked. Sorry boon!
#5 Probably the most radical change. Comments?
#6 Originally, I thought that the $1000 Canary was too much yellow. But it's grown on me, now that I've changed the spot colours. The red & blue was a little simple, and made the chip stick out like a sore thumb. This version (I think, anyway) integrates itself better into the set. There may be too much browns in the upper two denoms now though. It's up for discussion!
I haven't made any changes to the NCV chip as of yet, but I'd like to see a different spot pattern and potentially a different base colour. However, the Arc Yellow does look pretty awesome.
That's it for now, I eagerly await your collective wisdom!
