I found this article to be very interesting, to me it seemed like a critique of Iranian graphic design overall.A very critical view, that is.Having never studied Graphic Design from an IRanian standpoint, this article shed some light on the design over there for me. The posters displayed in this article were very interesting for most of them, I had trouble figuring out what they were trying to advertise/sell. The author does state in the article that Iranian design lacks good communication skills, and even goes as far to mention that it is not taught in schools. Artistic elements are far more prominent than good communication.That is prominent in the examples given. Like I mentioned, they are not very readable. If it were not for the caption descriptions, I would be completely lost. Do these designers not know who their target audience is? I feel that modern day design is a new concept to Iran, and in order to perfect their skills, Designers need to grasp basic communication concept and learn how to relate their work to the audience better to create a truly effective poster/Ad/book cover, etc.
Sorry If this sounds a bit jumbled....I am getting tired :)
