When it comes to simplifying a complex subject, a systematic, logical approach is needed to fully understand the consumers’ needs. Function surpasses form as a design prerequisite. Strong typography and clear infographics play a vital role in designing user-friendly literature.
Our brief was to create a visual identity system for the Abu Dhabi region encompassing Abu Dhabi City & Suburbs, the Al Gharbia Local & Regional area and Al Ain City & Regional zones.

These, in turn, were visually translated online, as well as in the form of downloadable apps.
