'Respect Culture & Religion'

This piece of typographical graphic design by AJ Dimarucot utilises the aesthetics of Arabic writing in order to enhance the communication of the message in which it is written. Due to the the visual and social connotations of Arabic writing relating to Islam, the message of respecting culture and religion is more directly aimed at people respecting Islam itself, yet there is still consideration of other religions. Due to the perspective seeming to be that of Islam, it is almost like the design is saying, "We respect your religion, so you should respect ours". However, this could be debated greatly due to the wide variation of Islamic belief.
All in all, a clever design utilising the imagery of a culture to express an opinion about it.
