Moarabisque: The essence of Arabia is an "Arabian custom designed motion graphics series". This Series is inspired by the diverse geography, architecture, arts, and culture of the Arabian Peninsula. These series are merged together as a cohesive motion graphics piece that visually reflects and promotes the varied Arabian culture through arts, architecture, music, and Islamic iconography. The final motion graphics video will introduce a series of visual icons that are of vital importance to religious and cultural values of Muslims; especially the Arabic nation. These icons delineate the characteristics of the Arabian culture; an Islamic civilized culture that emerged from the Arabian Desert and is visually rich in arts, architecture, and heritage. My thesis is an endeavor to implement motion graphics as an effectual multimedia tool. This tool will visually reflect and promote the inimitable culture and distinctive art of Saudi Arabia. The thesis comprises four distinct motion graphics videos. These videos will visually showcase various aspects and sceneries of the Saudi architectural heritage, artistic aura, and cultural ambiance to the intended audience. This will help them establish a strong sense of visual awareness towards not only my culture but also the aesthetic values surrounding it.
