Sale signs, in English and in Arabic, in The One furniture store, Abu Dhabi, February 2011.

When I lived in the United Arab Emirates, one of my favorite coffee shops was the café in The One, a chic furniture store in Abu Dhabi. They have some cool furniture and decor, and their advertising in the café contains all kinds of cool slogans, icons, and signage. But I was especially happy to find this smiley sign advertising a major sale just a couple of months before I moved back to the US.

(Seriously, go check out the website for The One — you might not like all their furniture, but their sense of style on display in their advertising is awesome. The “guru” in the Afro is especially nice!)



1. Smiley simulacrum: smiley elevator « Smile! - August 11, 2011

[…] Still in the UAE, this is an elevator on the Dubai campus of Zayed University, in the United Arab Emirates. I was on campus visiting my wife, who normally worked in Abu Dhabi where we lived but this day was attending meetings on our university’s sister campus. This elevator is in the library, so I was already happy when I stepped inside (I love libraries!), but finding this tall face grinning at me was a nice surprise.
