Currency Symbol for Indian Rupee
After the Indian Government's quest and search for the currency symbol that would denote our currency like US $, £ for GBP, € for Euro, five of the best entries have been short listed as the Symbol of Indian Rupee.
Though my entry to the logo / symbol contest didnt get selected to final five, my curiosity knew no bounds to imagine what the final symbol would look like. "R" somewhere close to anything that have this letter probably or no:-),,If so, I would be really elated... and finally our key boards on laptops and computers will have this as a Shift+Key...Wow time when the Ministry of Finance and Reserve Bank of India are going to release the same shortly....
It is the agonizing wait for the final five finalists including a school teacher Shibin KK , two designing firms JWT and Publicisi Ambience and architect Correa Mehtrotra and a typography scholar Udaya Kumar from IIT Mumbai.. The creation that wins is going to represent the currency of world's fastest growing economy and going to find place globally and with swift speed. One of the 5 contenstants will be the proud winner finding place in the History of India...something as great as designing a National Flag...its all about creativity, relevancy and a big bountiful luck.... Just waiting for the big day to come soon!
My choice in the final 5 is # 3. What is yours?
