Netflix Arabic Titles
While I was at BPG Advertising, I helped design the key art and type treatment for three Netflix Arabic titles. This included key art that depicts the title card, title treatment, and horizontal/vertical artwork. The challenge for this assignment was there was no context given for the shows’ genres. Because I have an understanding of the Middle Eastern language and culture, I was able to navigate the creative direction for these shows.
Under Control is about a married woman with a haunted past: she used to be a drug addict. She keeps her constant struggle hidden from her current husband.
Omar is a historical Arab television drama miniseries. Below are the title treatments and key art for this show. Click on the image to enlarge.
The Palace is the Downton Abbey show of the Middle East. It’s an Egyptian historical drama about Queen Khoshyar, the mother of Khedive of Egypt and Sudan, also known as Ismail Pasha and Ismail the Magnificent, who ruled in the 19th century. Watch the show’s trailer below.
