A country’s currency design is a ubiquitous component of its overall nation-brand which works as, in addition to as a legal tender, a visual reminder of the nation’s history, values and culture. This self-initiated project’s goal was to redesign Pakistan’s currency notes while exploring different possibilities in terms of patterns, motifs, personalities, layout and typography.
In the sub-continent currency designs revolve usually around one personality. For Pakistan it has always been Quaid-e-Azam, for India it’s always been Gandhi. Here we have a proposition that celebrates several major personalities who played pivotal roles in the making of Pakistan.
Front side of the note is an adaptation from Dowling Duncan’s Dollar Redesign, which prompted as an inspiration in the designing the front layout.
