A New Currency for Pakistan is Design by Shan Ul Haq. “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.”

The Designs in Detail:

“The designs are a blend of traditional and modern, with a striking minimalistic look much unlike Pakistan’s usual intricately patterned approach. Nevertheless enough elements from our current approach are preserved in the new designs. The traditional arabesque patterns as seen on our current notes make a showing on the new designs as well. The color selection is also reminiscent of our current notes; the 100 rupee bill, the laal note, is still red so as to facilitate the transition into the new system for the audience, the people.”
“For some reason, we don’t use our official name, ‘Islamic Republic of Pakistan’, on the banknotes. These ones make it a point to highlight our complete official name, as it is our country’s identity.”
