Poster Monday: Suddenly a Dove
For the second Poster Monday spot of November we have a poster coming from Iran entitled “Suddenly a Dove” designed by Babak Safari. Babak was born in Bandar Abbas, Iran, in 1986. He studied Graphic Design at the Naghshe Jahan University. He works as a designer and his posters have been exposed in several places like the Warsaw International Poster Biennale, ISPB International Student Poster Biennale, Lublin, Moscow Global Biennale of Graphic Design Golden Bee and many more. Currently he is a member of the Union of Designers.
The poster “Suddenly a Dove” was designed for a theatre play about the life and problems of Iranian women in the past. In this poster, a woman’s face is combined with a building, the shape of the building is inspired by Iranian paintings of the 15th century AD. The colors turquoise and golden are traditional in persian work and black is used to show sadness, problems and misery. “Usually, in the production and design of my posters, I try to use the tradition, elements and composition of Iranian art, and usually the 15th-century paintings in Iran have a strong, rich, and completely Iranian composition, and I use them” says Babak.
