Morteza Momayez (1936-2005) was a Tehran-based graphic designer of posters, covers, logos, and books. He was the most honored of a large number of exceptionally talented Iranian designers and typographers. We in the U.S. are sometimes myopic when it comes to non-western design. International design is equally — if not more — important than what’s done in the US. We have to learn to open our eyes.
i went to college and got randomly placed with a roommate. six years later, she still takes up gigantic portions of my heart. the escapades the two of us have been on together/ a lifetime of memories. we once had a mouse named molly live with us in our haunted dorm room. we almost got killed in the Bronx. we’ve road-tripped from the dirty south all through the west, laughing the entire way. she is the funniest person i know. i could go on and on, but most significantly: life would not be good without her. i would not be good without her.
to you, Deneice, happy birthday.
