Mother of the Nation Park (formerly known as Mushrif Central Park) is an exciting redevelopment of a public park featuring a variety of amenities, educational spaces and botanic gardens in the heart of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. To quote Mother of the Nation Park’s website, “the overall design of the new park [honors] the legacy of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and his vision of preserving the United Arab Emirates’ cultural and natural history.” This project aims to enrich its guests through exciting features that can be found throughout the park and to provide them with a safe community space where families can explore, relax and spend time together. ArtHouse Design has created a comprehensive, bilingual signage and wayfinding program for this beautiful new development that was inspired by the local culture, flora and fauna of the United Arab Emirates, and the goals of the park and surrounding community. This included custom icons to delineate each amenity and area of discovery throughout the park, decorative banners, city bus wraps to advertise the park throughout Abu Dhabi, and a custom map for ease of navigation.
