Morteza Momayez, Graphic Designer
Morteza Momayez (1936-2005) was a Tehran-based graphic designer of posters, covers, logos, and books. And quite a good one. Recently, I was given a catalog of his cover designs and was mightily impressed (syn. blown away). In fact, he was the most honored of a large number of exceptionally talented Iranian designers and typographers. We in the U.S. are sometimes myopic when it comes to non-western design, and although Iran has not been ignored, Momayez, who is also known for his film posters, deserves a bit more recognition. Learn more at this new site, and below are a few of his book jackets, too.
