My Sunday Photo Week 123 L is for Letters


Duabi launched it's own font this week, sadly despite downloading it, I am unable to install it right now.

This isn't the first time Dubai has designed something so inventive with it's letters and words.

This is the official logo for Dubai tourism. It integrates both the English word (read left to right) and the Arabic word (read right to left) for Dubai.

Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum says 'Dubai speaks with one voice' when it was introduced in 2014.

  1. Hi Suzanne, I do like the idea of having two languages blended into one sign. Very creative.

  2. How clever to have it reading in both languages! I love the logo and there's lots to see in the background of this photo too.
