Dive – Issue 33
Published May/June 2018
A note from our Managing Editor, Reham Alawadhi:
As we dive into the year, we decided to use this issue to highlight the art and design industry in Dubai, UAE. Focusing on the design industry in the UAE meant our cover story had to highlight Dubai Design District and its CEO Mohammad Al-Shehhi who is fostering an environment for creatives in Dubai.
Also located within Dubai’s design district is Re:Urban Studio, a co-working space that is dedicated to people within the design industry. Hailing from Saudi, but based in Dubai, is Tahreek, a motion design house that is integrating traditional print graphics with animation and filmmaking.
Gulf Photo Plus and Gallery One are both spaces for art, design, and photography. Gulf Photo Plus is a center for photography that caters to all types of art, while Gallery One is a gallery space that sells a variety of items, ranging from photograph prints and artwork to notebooks and postcards.
Another personality we highlighted, Raha Moharrak, also hails from Saudi Arabia but is based in Dubai. Raha made headlines five years ago as the first Saudi woman and youngest Arab to summit Mount Everest.
- Distribution will commence from June 15.
