occupy george

Regardless of where you stand on the ever-expanding Occupy movement, this little piece is worth a second look. Created by San Fran designers Andy Dao and Ivan Cash, "Occupy George," is one of the most effective tools coming out of the movement - and a decidedly non-digital way of making a message go viral.

Dao and Cash print or stamp simple info graphics and charts onto dollar bills (and you can too!) creating a crazy confluence of medium as message, or is it message as medium? Either way it's ingenious in its simplicity and according to the Bureau of Printing and Engraving, these bills are still street legal.
