The most important element in “How Your Money Works” is the “Money” character. We spent a lot of time developing it. The good / working money drew his inspiration from the stereotype 50s office worker. The american family guy who works nine to five.
The evil money characters were inspired by movie villains and other pop culture figures like Rambo, the Mad Scientist, Darth Vader and the slave driver from Indiana Jones – Temple of Doom. All graphics are vector based. But we wanted to give them a used look similar like paper money. The solution was an grain texture we copied in every image.
