Inspiring Artworks for the 4nd Persian Gulf Poster Festival


On 30th April 2006, “National Geography” magazine, published a map with distortion that wrote the spurious name “Arabic Gulf” instead of “Persian Gulf”. Of course the magazine was apologized to Iranians for this contempt, but according to that, April 30th was registered  by Iranians to their calendar as the date of “National Persian Gulf”. Many of Persian graphic designers design posters for this day, every year.
Posters that follow were designed under the supervision the Mohammad Ardalani three-day workshops in Tehran IT Art and Cultural center. These works exhibited at different locations in IRAN.
