Subway in Arabic

I like showing the logos and signs of large chains known around the world that have locations here in Saudi Arabia. I think it’s interesting, even though I can’t read Arabic, to see how the font is simulated into Arabic. This Subway logo is especially remarkable because Arabic reads right to left and the whole style of the English Subway style is definitely felt in the Arabic one, down to the colors and the arrows. I think it’s really cool!

    ?Is that black car about to crash through the glass? The shaky photo makes it seems like it’s on a chase, reminiscent of like a James Bond movie.

    That is cool, all right! I also notice an unlit ‘Open’ sign and reflected beads…

  7. The Arabic font looks cheeky actually, like telling Subway “Thats how we do it here!”
