I think this article is very interesting. Its interesting on how they refer to they're art as graphic art. I like how they're advertisements have a more artistic side to it. Unlike all ads that are produced in United States where the concept of ad needs to be figured out in 5 to 10 seconds. In the article they talk about how in Iran, they have a few billboards that they want to viewer to get the concept in a few seconds. Which is almost the complete opposite of the United States. I never really thought about how graphic design would be perceived in different countries.
