Dubai Design Dis­trict

The Brief

To tell the d3 sto­ry in a clear, crisp way, and help the free zone intro­duce itself and its raison de etre to Dubai’s cre­ative com­mu­ni­ties.

The Challenge

The web design was a con­tem­po­rary, respon­sive grid. Each box could hold 35 words of text. Dou­ble box­es could hold 70. The sto­ry need­ed to move, and it need­ed to fit.

The Outcome

Snap­py short copy com­bined with longer form writ­ing in the inside pages to cre­ate a com­pelling nar­ra­tive to intro­duce d3 to the com­mu­ni­ty in unfor­get­table man­ner.
