Today the elflisan blog called my attention to the CNN Arabic logo, which is indeed very creative. The Logo consists of the English letters CNN, but arranged in such a way that they are incorporated in the Arabic word بالعربية (bi l-3arabiya), or “in Arabic”. Really clever and must have taken the logo designer quite some time to come up with, I assume.
Apparently, the Arabic 7-up logo does something similar. Does anyone know of other such examples of Arabic-English script integration? It definitely is very interesting and I’ll be on the lookout for other such creative uses of Arabic calligraphy.
