The Ultimate Wealth (Dollar Sign Design)


The Ultimate Wealth (Dollar Sign Design) is inspired by the human greed.

Greed might be one of the seven deadly sins but it's more than a sin, it's the drive for most of human disasters. Greed drives wars, hate, and jealousy. Greed never makes someone happy as they would never be able to acquire enough wealth and resources to satisfy their greed. Contentment on other hand is great value to have, making even a penny seems like a bar of gold. Contentment is about being happy with what you have and focusing on utilising it. It is indeed an endless treasure.

The Arabic calligraphy writing "القناعة كنز لا يفنى" was very challenging to translate, as it is part of a ancient proverb. Thus, we translated the intended meaning "Contentment is an endless treasure." The choice of a dollar sign is due to its symbolism of greed and money.

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.
