Describe the brief from the client
To develop a brand photographic library for Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority that captures the essence of the brand positioning, 'Travelers welcome'.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates. The notion of ‘respect’ is brought to the centre of the brand identity, and aims to appeal to an audience that has misconstrued Abu Dhabi against
the backdrop of the world political climate and it’s neighbouring countries.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
The brand photography library consists of over 50 images that have been applied across all brand
touchpoints including press advertising, environmental graphics, website and print collateral.

This second phase of the brand photography portrays the truthful and intimate Bedouin culture that is still a way of life today in Abu Dhabi - one of the youngest nations born of a truly ancient past.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market

ADTA was also short listed among the top three nominees for the 'Best Meetings & Incentive Destination Marketing.'
