Saudi Women Can Drive Arab News cover wrap. To celebrate women driving in Saudi Arabia for the first time in decades Arab News collaborated with illustrator Malika Favre to create an iconic illustration for a cover wrap and souvenir edition of the newspaper. The illustration was animated for use across digital and this included a web takeover on the Arab News website. The cover illustration of a Saudi woman behind the wheel was also available online for download as a free screen saver in a collaboration with the website 21Wallpaper.
