We are working on a special product for the Muslim market. In theory, it is planned to have a digital photo frame function with many other functions added. The product will have LCD screen which size will be 9'' and 19''. It will have wi-fi feature, high output stereo speakers and a custom remote controller unit which will be used to manage software features on device remotely.
It will be hanged on the wall like a photo frame or stand on a desk or table.
The main functions:
- Display of wisdom sayings on pictures as slideshow. When the product is idle, it will work as a digital frame showing these pictures.
- Recite the call for prayer (Azan) five times a day. At different times during the day, the product will play a special video or audio file for about five minutes that is the call for prayer.
- Live broadcast from important mosques in the world. There will be access buttons on the screen that the user can pick for example the Grand Mosque in Mecca and watch it live.

What we need is a unique merchandise design using some elements from the Islamic art in some manner. The product will be multilingual and thus used by all Muslims in the world. Power and volume functions will be controlled with buttons on the product itself but the main control will be through a custom remote controller that will be supplied with the product. It is important that use of artistry from the Islamic culture but not a heavy use. We need something that looks elegant with lightly introduced elements of Islamic art.
