$100 bill re-design modifies looks and feel of fonts .
The newly re-designed $100 bill is packed with new colors and security features. Of course anytime you create a new design for something familiar, the critics will speak. Some have suggested that the new $100 bill design is very close to the Euro. I guess maybe a little?

That’s good too. Design consistency creates cohesion. Unfortunately the security ribbon ruins the new look. Thoughts?
