#4 They look so cool
Even the most staunch royalist has to admit that Lizzie II loses out in the cool stakes to the likes of David Bowie (B£10), and Luol Deng (B£5). The decision over who to place on the notes was voted on by Brixton residents, which were then designed by local artists. They look great in cash registers, and on your wall at home too – buy our collector packs here.
Want to meet to B£ designers? It’s Brixton Design Week (part of London Design Festival) so to celebrate Brixton’s iconic design culture we’re having a party on Thursday 18 September, from 7pm at Grow:Brixton (where the ice rink used to be on Pope’s Road, opposite Brixton Rec). Come find out more about our cool note designs, as well as some of our upcoming design work themed around the idea of ‘Brixton Independents.’ Plus DJs, live music, talks, art displays, drinks, and everyone connected with the Brixton Pound so far – users, business owners, founders, staff and designers. We look forward to seeing you there!
