Emirate of Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi, UAE
Abu Dhabi, the capitol of the UAE, is transforming from a historic trade center into a dynamic, modern metropolis. However, the city lacked street names, addresses, zip codes, and a consistent branded visual system for all municipal facilities. SPD collaborated with an extensive team of planners, engineers, and cultural experts to create the nations’ first citywide system of street names, addresses, zip codes, and sign standards for all municipal districts, facilities and parks. The new dual language program is digitally linked via QR codes, propelling this historic city into an exciting future.
