I saw these yesterday on Graphicology
, they are photos taken in Dubai of products
branded in both English and Arabic. The packaging designs are nothing to write home about, they are just your regular, cheesy supermarket packages, but I find the way some of them have translated their branding into Arabic really interesting. Of course Arabic is a phonetic language and I think the best of these packages are the ones were the branding has been mirrored to reflect this.
There are also some pics of store signage
, which are equally as interesting. I really like the look of the Arabic GUCCI with all the dots.
