1 Crown Card

This is the first of four ‘bank-notes’ for playing TideBreakers. Whilst it may not seem like anything costs much in the world, it’s important to note that a Crown is actually the highest denomination of money. About 4 or 5 crowns is the equivalent to a decent annual salary.

The crown symbol emerged from almost two pages of sketches and ideas. The brief I gave myself was that it had to be distinctive whilst having a basis in an existing typographical character and also quick to handwrite. I settled on this symbol as it was essentially a C with three quick dashes above it, and it also formed its own unique icon; if you look at it one way, I think it looks a little like a face similar to a design you might find on a samurai helmet/mask.
