Al Shindagha Museum
From humble beginnings as a fishing village towards the rise to global prominence, Dubai has captured the imagination of the world luring thousands of foreigners to come making it their home.
Al Shindagha Museum delights its visitors with a taste of Dubai, widely known for its openness and progressive thinking, Dubai’s culture and traditions are at the heart of Al Shindagha Museum, where people from near and far can learn about our fascinating past. The iconic Dubai Creek area is the home to our museum where visitors can experience the vibrant history of Dubai. It was developed as part of an initiative to transform the creek into a regional culture and traditional centre.
The Brand Developemnt
Al Shindagha Museum brand identity stems from Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum’s House, which stands out as larger than many other buildings in this area.
This house was built in stages over many years, resulting in a unique building which resembles the way Dubai slowly grew and took form.
Al Shindagha Museum Brandmark
Al Shindagha Museum brandmark designed and developed to honour the late ruler Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum, and inspired by his house—created by the outlined structure of a building made in 1894, connecting our past with our future.
The Kufi calligraphy is used to spell out ‘Al Shindagha’, whilst also created by the shape of the house when looked at from a bird’s eye view. The architecture of the house, as well as its windows’ curved edges are added to the font to soften the edges.
