Stella McCartney has turned her design talents to redesigning a bank account card for private bank Coutts & Co.
The design according to Vogue.co.uk, “combines the intricacies found on banknotes and on the Coutts cheque book with aspects of the British countryside”. A translucent Coutts signature can also been seen when the card is held up to the light – in a reference to the watermark on a banknote.
McCartney said: “It was refreshing to be asked by Coutts to design something I have never done before.
“It is a design area that has been overlooked in the past and it’s about time you get to spend your hard earned money with an account card that looks good.”
The current account card will be offered to new and existing customers of Coutts, which is the international private banking arm of The Royal Bank of Scotland Group.
