Arabic Volkskrant

By Tarek Atrissi

Another Arabic Logo Adaptation assignment; and again in Holland, where the discussion of the influences of the Arab world as well of the Muslim world on the country, leads to many demands for adapting certain well known Dutch brands into Arabic. Volkskrant Magazine, the weekly publication that accompanies the Daily Volkskrant Newspaper, published a special issue dedicated to the positive influences that islam has brought into the social and cultural life in the Netherlands. The Arabic lettering created then aimed to imitate the structure and rhythm of the very familiar Volkskrant Logo, resulting in a distinctive Arabic lettering style used for the logo adaptation, and for the magazine’s special masthead for this issue.
