The National

The National is a daily quality national and international newspaper published 6 days per week, by the Abu Dhabi Media Company. At Lacava Design, I aided in the art direction and design of the entire paper from start to finish and developed graphic styles, typographical styles and grids. The nameplate and section flags were designed in collaboration with type designer Christian Schwartz.

Since the launch in 2008, The National has won over 30 awards, including 3 silver medals at the 30th annual SND Best of Newspaper Design competition. The National’s tally of awards puts it in the top ten internationally after less than a year from its launch.
