WWF UAE PUBLISHED LOGO
The Emirates Nature - WWF organization reached out to NYUAD students to request a logo redesign in preparation for their large-scale rebranding initiative. My final Wadi-fingerprint logo design was selected as the current organization logo.
The story of the Mangrove logo proposal begins by exploring the idea of home in the UAE. Within the region exist some of the rarest ecosystems in the world. The mangroves and Wadi Wurayah stood out as the homes in the UAE that best illustrated UAE nature. In the recent decades of the country’s history, we have found a home amongst these habitats and left our mark on them. The fingerprint represents the responsibility we have as a community living with these ecosystems. Within the fingerprint is a mangrove tree interweaving throughout the lines, acknowledging the precious ecosystems in need of human support.

WWF UAE FLAMINGO-PALM LOGO DRAFT
Following the presentation with the board of Emirates Nature - WWF, I was asked to create more variations on a flamingo-palm logo created by my fellow NYUAD designers. This design takes a modern, geometrical style and incorporates two flamingos to form a native UAE date palm within a gem. The logo includes seven points to symbolize the seven Emirates of the UAE uniting together to protect the nation’s ecosystems.

HOWLER RADIO REDESIGN
The founding seniors of NYUAD Howler Radio asked me to head publicity for the radio and give a complete new face to Jackal Radio on the NYUAD campus, including changing the name to Howler Radio. The finalized logo can be applied to any color scheme across the media we publicize on, and has been incorporated into the Howler Radio website and shirt merchandise.
