Afaaq Al Mustaqbal highlights the social and cultural aspects, and aesthetics, of cafeterias in the United Arab Emirates, with a special emphasis on the design thinking that goes into designing for cafeterias. Cafeterias, ubiquitous in the UAE, are sites ripe for examination through the lens of graphic design. Signage, logos, colors, and the choice of a name are examined, and their roots in cultural trends and design defaults are explored.
