Mawahib: The Talent Directory
This self-published resource book from Dubai-based design and advertising agency Natoof showcases the best graphic designers, illustrators and photographers from throughout the United Arab Emirates. With sections in both English and Arabic, the directory simplifies the process of locating skilled artists and photographers in the MENA region. Promotional items included pocket moleskin notebooks—ideal gifts for making quick sketches, doodling & writing down ideas—and two custom rubber stamps. The books arrive wrapped in stamped newsprint paper with heavyweight round coasters, that also make useful bookmarks.
