reflection: salam,nagfa-singapore

Going back to my roots: designing reflections with death/black metal influences.

'Salam' is Arabic for 'peace', and is often used as a greeting among both the Arabic and Malay communities - 'assalamualaikum' (peace be upon you) - which is often replied with: 'waalaikumussalam' (and peace be upon you too).

In the Malay culture, a 'salam' could also mean an action of welcoming a person's right hand with one's right hand, and then placing one's right hand on the heart after releasing the other person's hand, a Malay version of a handshake.

Significantly, the root word of the word 'Islam' comes from the same root word of 'salam', thus Islam is also known as a religion of peace.

The strokes in the letters in 'nagfa' form 'design', too, when arranged in the opposite direction.

Joga Bonito is Portuguese for 'play beautifully' and who better to represent it than the genius Ronaldinho.
