Poster, Tehran Touch, Iranian Graphic Design New Scene

This is a Poster. It was designed by Homa Delvaray. It is dated 2014. Its medium is digital print.

Tradition and modernity converge in Delvaray’s exhibition poster. The poster constructs over-scaled, three-dimensional letterforms from Persian tile patterns. Intertwined among the blocky letters are ornate strands of vegetation. A crisp cartouche separates the details about the event from the richly textured background.

It is credited Courtesy of the designer.
