| A professional Arabic language calligrapher | Wooden street signs | Red, blue and white oil based paints | Real or imaginary significant locations in the village of Shatana |
Upon locating a calligrapher, develop a type-face for Shatana village signage system. Design symbols for real or desired landmarks throughout the village of Shatana. Cut out a stencil for each one. In the mean time, commission a carpenter to make 3-meter high wooden sign posts, one for each location, stencil each post sign (for example: a bus stop, a bench, a domestic dairy factory, a church, etc). Finally, hire a pickup truck to distribute and install the sign posts around the village.
