Wooden Bankcard

July 23rd 2009

Silver, gold or platinum creditcards? Expensive metals in credit card design used to have a certain luster in the past, yet today we are all (painfully) aware the mimicked material is totally meaningless – In the end it's all plastic. So, why not going for something different?

Nowadays, many banks provide their customers with the opportunity to design their own bank card. At first I didn't see the value of uploading a family holiday photo on my bankcard. Only once I realized this was the perfect opportunity to obtain my very own highly stylish and classical wooden bankcard my enthusiasm grew.

I have to admit, I am extremely happy with my wooden bankcard. Every time I slide it in the cash vending machine, I feel the magic of transforming wood into money.

And here is the good thing: you can have a highly stylish and classical wooden bankcard too. I have made the bankcard wood texture available for you download. Simply upload the file to the bankcard customization website of your bank and you will soon have your very own wooden bankcard and feel the magic of turning wood into money.

This artwork is my gift to you (if you like I am even willing to sign your bankcard, although that's probably not a good idea).

I am working on 'thin air' ;)

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
