This project was about choosing an artist and creating a hypothetical exhibition for that artist. The goal of the project was to design the exhibition materials while keeping the artist’s symbols and feelings. Everything that was designed for the exhibition was supposed to represent the artist’s work to the public at first glance.
I chose Reza Abedini, who is an Iranian graphic designer and a professor. His work keeps a modern theme as he blends traditional Islamic patterns, calligraphy and culture. I chose three of his posters for my exhibition’s main posters and added a black box with the exhibition information because his work was already very busy and I didn’t want to change his work. Then I kept the black box and the texture of of his work as my main design idea for making the exhibition materials, such as tickets, outdoor banners, wall designs and the website.
