Jotun Arabic Logo

The Arabic logo of the Norwegian paint company Jotun is supposed to be defunct, but here it is on a storefront in Riyadh, plain as day.

A little bit further down the road, they seem to prefer a western alphabet.

The old and the new:

This paint can was discarded on the side of a vacant lot.

The front is in a Latin font, but the Arabic font has been kept on the back.

A new product, Jotashield Extreme (clickable), which was developed particularly for the temperatures in Saudi’s urban air domes, not to mention the lucrative construction boom, also has a bit of Arabic on the front of the can. [Source.]
