The Optimistic (Sun Design)


The Optimistic (Sun Design) is inspired by smiles on people's faces.

To smile, we use at least 10 muscles. Yet, we generate happiness to ourselves and others. Smiling is a universal language that communicates love and affection across people and cultures. To smile in the face of your loved one is like the sun rising to the sky, brining a new day into existence.

The Arabic calligraphy writing "الحياة حلوة" was literally translated into "Life is beauty." The choice of a sun is based on its symbolism of beauty and happiness. The sun shines from the faces of those who smile.

Arabic writing is usually viewed with suspicion and fear as many people associate it unjustifiably with terrorism. Thus, through showing the beauty of Arabic writing and Arabic calligraphy via printing it on hippie T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, tank tops, mugs, canvas, tote cotton bags, and mouse pads; we hope to change the perception of Arabic writing towards admiration and appreciation.
