The weekly magazine LIFO commissioned us to design an old one-thousand drachmas bank note for a special article about the possibility of Greece’s return to our old currency.
Despite the nostalgia of our former currency, we realize –to alter the words of I. Montanelli- that the return to drachma would be nothing else but the gloomy epilogue of “a nation that never managed to become international”. In the design for our “thousand drachmas” we show key moments in our history, from the more iconic and stereotypical, to the events that leaded to our economic plunge, next to the keys of our new Mercedes sports car.
The main illustration that was applied to our “thousand-drachmas” was used as the cover of the magazine
