Due to the increasing intercultural interactions, multilingualism plays an important role worldwide. By consciously working as designers with several writing systems, we obviously speak to a larger readership, but above all we also convey clear social and political signals: How do we deal typographically with the different writing systems—are they separate or are they interwoven and interact with each other?

I have tried to approach the Farsi writing system visually by collecting everyday media. In a second step, I worked with designers from the University of Tehran. We shared our typographic knowledge and looked for ways to combine our writing systems typographically.


THE WORK IS PART OF THE PROJECT ›TWO CITIES‹ IN COOPERATION WITH THE ›TEHERAN UNIVERSITY OF ART‹.
