Are States becoming more and more companies ?

For few decades, we were told that State has to be modernized. The Welfare state is exhausted in front of the crisis, and the economic mutation, the idea of its poor management has grown. With the rise to power of companies’ directors, the step is taken.

What would happen if companies become States?
In this case, could companies issue their own currency?

Therefore I took brand’s missions statements as if they were states Mottos, used the picture of companies’ founder as if they were intellectual and political figures, and displayed up strong brand icons the same way regimes had highlighted ideologies. Doing so, I also tried to root legitimacy of these brands in putting places related to their history, like the first gas pump for Shell, or the new Apple campus.

I have also imagined this currency with worldwide influences, displaying both vertical and horizontal reading directions, the same way the Venezuelan bolivar and Swiss franc do. Eventually I chose the uniform scale derived from the US dollar bill for all units and used the same ratio width/height originally found in the Euro. I have as well make sure to respect the raster process and the complexity against counterfeiting.
