As some of you might know, we're a little partial to some Persian from time to time. That's probably why we found Behrouz article in Ping magazine so inspiring. Behrouz has been watching how Iranian graphic design has developed since the ground-breaking show “Un Cri Persan” that was held in Paris in 2002. Behgrouz says:

One of the qualities that makes current Iranian graphic design unique is its typography. The country has a rich history of visual arts and moreover the better part of this heritage consists of calligraphy. Throughout the times calligraphy has been inventing and reinventing itself and has influenced other forms of art. The incorporation of calligraphy into Islamic architecture is a fine example of this union. In recent times these treasures of beauty and harmony have inspired painters, sculptors, and in particular: graphic designers.
