ALL RIGHTS NOT RESERVED

Intellectual Property Rights in Saudi Arabia 

_

In the second part of my MFA thesis I focused on intellectual property rights in Saudi Arabia as one of the factors that were affecting graphic design and the creative field in general.The target audience was both Saudi creatives and the general Saudi public.

 

The goal was to bring awareness to IP issues, to help understand basic IP laws, and make them accessible.

The main deliverable is a guide book split into two main sections. The first half covers the history and current state as well as main IP concepts simplified in digestible and easy to understand language. The second half contains all the current IP laws in Saudi Arabia in organized chapters with easy to follow text hierarchy and color coding.

The All Rights Not Reserved book is now part of the Thomas J. Watson Library collection at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
