Money and Design


  • Artur Borcuch The Jan Kochanowski University in Kielce, Faculty of Management and Administration, Institute of Management


The purpose of this article is to analyze the influence
of the money design on willingness to make
purchases. In this paper, we focus on three aspects
that structure the relation between money and
design: the link between design and finance (in
general), determinants of design and perspective of
currency design. The main research problem
explored in this paper is: Does the money design
have influence on the willingness to make purchases
by employees/employers at design studios, design
students and students of economics/management?
The main hypothesis is as follows – the more
experience in design practice, the more important is
money design.
