The Week in a Tweet: 3rd August 2018
Welcome back to your weekly instalment of the latest creative news. This week includes Burberry’s rebrand, Harry Kane fivers and a couple of our favourite Pride 2018 campaigns.
A batch of six £5 notes etched with Harry Kane’s face have now entered circulation after micro-engraver Graham Short created them to celebrate the six goals the player scored in this year’s World Cup. The artist creates the portraits by scratching the design with a fine needle into the clear section of the note. Currently making their way across the UK, the fivers are said to be worth a whopping £50,000, so we don’t know about you, but we’ll be keeping an even closer eye on our cash from now on!
