Abdulla Nashaath is a graduate of The One Academy’s School of Illustration and the brainchild of the latest Maldivian currency series ‘Ran Dhiafaheh’. He won the nationwide design competition for the revamp of the Maldivian Rufiyaa following the country’s golden jubilee celebration. Nashaath’s designs are inspired by the everyday life of the citizens and items that are uniquely Maldivian such as the ‘Sangu’ (conch shell), Loamaafaanu, Boduberu and more. Utilising the design knowledge that he gained from The One Academy, he went on to beat hundreds of other participants and make a name for himself in his home country. We at TOA are immensely proud of him and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
