I find the work of Mehdi Saeedi exquisite! He combines his experience in classical islamic calligraphy with a strong contemporary visual look. An internationally known artist based in Philadelphia, Saeedi was born in Tehran, Iran and trained in art & design. He is a typographer and calligrapher whose expertise is zoomorphic lettering design—shaping words into animals and other forms. He has received many awards and his works are to be found in museums around the world.
