Dubai Poster – 25 top landmarks & attractions
I wanted to create a Dubai poster that would show the emirate’s main landmarks at a glance.
The elements would have to interact with each other in a fun and playful way. They had to have a dance-like character. The composition had to flow around the canvas. The Dubai poster had to be cheerful and bright.
With that in mind, I began to gather a list of main Dubai landmarks. It eventually comprised of 25 well-known buildings, places and activities. They represent the city of Dubai as a tourist destination and a global business hub. While there is much to choose from, the final selection that I considered to be essential is the following:
Dubai Poster attractions
• Burj Khalifa • Dubai Gold Souk • Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) • Jumeirah Beach Hotel • Burj Al Arab • helicopter tours • camel riding • desert safari • Dubai Zoo • Emirates airlines • Emirates Towers • Dubai Fountain • Emirates Golf Club • Dubai Jumeirah Mosque • Emirates Golf Club • Dubai Metro • Wild Wadi • Big Bus Tours • UAE Union Flag • Flamingo • Palm Jumeirah • Atlantis The Palm • Madinat Jumeirah Resort • Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible • The beach
The style blend
I experimented with this style for the first time. I wanted to create a Dubai poster with a hand-painted artistic look. At the same time, I thought it’s important to keep the clean lines illustration style. The result came out just as intended. If you see a close-up, the art brush details are quite visible to give it that artistic look. Seen from far, however, the artwork feels more like an illustration. This created a unique style of its own. Thanks for reading and stay tuned for the Dubai Poster making-of blog post which should feature an animation. And last, but not least, I’d love to hear what you think about this artwork of Dubai.
