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:

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.
