{ introducing the ludos…

At TEDxLeeds2012 LSx will be introducing the Ludos, a new currency for Leeds. The Ludos will exist for just the evening of 29th of February and will be legal tender for a special menu at Primos, at the Corn Exchange. One Ludos will be equivalent to one Pound Sterling.

The Ludos was named by The Culture Vultures' Emma Bearman to imply both playfulness and the city's ancient name of Leodis. LSx's Chief Creative Officer, Tom Morgan, then set about designing a unique banknote, celebrating Leeds past and hinting at its imagined future…

Ludos Future

Right now, the Ludos is an experiment but if successful, we're going to work with the city's institutions to bring it back, for good and for the whole of Leeds :)
