We were honored to create the opening titles for the TEDxDubai conference for the second consecutive year in 2011. The main titles showcase the staggering growth of Dubai over the past 10 years through time-lapse satellite imagery, and act as a prologue to the event that seeks to celebrate the “small” in a location like Dubai, mostly known for excess and extravagance.

The titles, together with the event, remind everyone that small things can have a huge impact and that Dubai’s present grandeur was once a multitude of tiny grains of sand.

Proudly conceived, designed and directed by METAphrenie in Dubai.

Music by Reiner Erlings.
