Seattle / Tehran

Poster Collaboration

Above: Johann Gomez (left) and Iman Raad (right), from The Seattle-Tehran Poster Show. Just two examples from a voluminous collaboration between designers from two seemingly disparate cities.

Co-curated by Daniel R. Smith and Iman Raad, high profile Iranian designers like Reza Abedini and members of the 5th Color grace this collection.

Based on the brilliant Seattle-Havana Poster Show, the website also offers numerous links to some of the participating designer websites. Domo arigato gozaimashta to Rachel Nusbaum for passing this along.
