Brief

Creatively translate a promotional English coffee table book, which used visuals and basic text as the main tools to promote the natural beauty of the Arab desert and the resort. But Arabs are already aware of the desert environment, and so an alternative approach was required.

Solution

Our creative team stayed at the resort for two days to experience the concept, before embarking upon a ‘trans-creation’ project. Poetic yet informative Arabic text with a root in the past was used to revive memories, invoke nostalgic sentiment and create an emotional link with the resort to have a profound effect on the reader.
