Every single time I got to Dubai I’m beyond impressed. I look around and say to myself “wow, this is a city done right, they know what they’re doing and how to get things done”. And this is exactly why people worldwide flock to the city and love it so much. And then just when I thought it couldn’t get any better they put out their own font, what country gets together and decides to put out a font? You all, this is mad genius. Dubai came up with an idea to market their country in an amazing and creative way, and now everyone is talking about them even more. Wow, just wow!
Dubai just became the first city in the world to have its own official font in Microsoft Office.
The font itself is super cool, it’s really hard (and expensive) to find a font that coordinates both Arabic and English. Take it from me, I work in a design studio in Saudi Arabia and this is always something we’re on the lookout for. The majority of businesses here wants logos and designs in general in both languages. This font has attracted attention worldwide, just look through #expressyourself. You can read more about the story of the font here, and you can download it for free here.
