Mohammed Ehsai

College might not be the period of time everyone favors, but It will always open your eyes to topics and people you would have never known if you never attended that darn typography class!!

Mohammad Ehsai an Iranian Calligrapher who made me include Arabic typo in almost all of my designs.
He was Born in 1939, in Iran Graduated from Faculty of Fine Arts, Tehran University
Winner of French National Award, Int. Painting Festival, France, 1974
Art Professor, Tehran University and Editor of Iranian National Art text books.
Mohammad Ehsai was born in Qazvin, Iran in 1939. Ehsai was classically trained in traditional calligraphy, such as Nastaliq and Muhaqqaq. He was one of the leading artists incorporating Persian script, into new artistic expressions shaped by symbolic art forms found in Shi’i religious works. As an intellectually curious artist, his desire to know more about the way in which art is expressed in different cultures led him to travel and study in several European and Asian countries, where he also exhibited widely.
Mohammed Inspired me to learn how to paint, I didn't succeed yet but one day I will. The color combination he uses is so magnificent which makes it feel unreal.His brush strokes
carry a lot of movement and direction plus he always uses Islamic ornaments and Quraan versus which makes it even more spiritual.
This is Some of my favorite paintings:

He also did posters and logos....what an inspiration

Spot the Hidden Element

Things are not always what they seem, For all you Logo lovers this will definitely interest you, Spot the
hidden element in the following logos:
1.                                                                                                              2.

3.                                                                                                         4.                                                                                                          
5.                                                                                                            6.


1.Hartford Whalers The logo shows 3 concepts at the same time. A whale’s tail, letter “W” in green and the white space forming an “H” for Hartford.
2. Yoga Australia Logo 
At first glance the logo may look like a simple picture of a young girl doing her yoga exercise but if you watch it carefully the body posture is creating the Australia Map.       
3.Toblerone Logo I never noticed the brilliant logo while enjoying my bar. You must be thinking what is there to find out as it clearly shows the Swiss Alps? Let me explain…Toblerone originated in Bern, Switzerland – A city whose name is rumored to mean, “City of bears”. When you look at it again you will find a bear in the logo.

4.Lafayette Logo If you’ve ever visited one of the famous stores in Paris – Galeries Lafayette, you will notice that it’s logo represents Paris with its joined letters “t” to form Eiffel Tower. C’est magnificique!

5.FedEx Logo You would say you have seen it thousand times but just to make you notice an arrow formed between the letters "E" and "X" conveying speed, direction and reliability of this amazing courier service.

6.Heart Beats Although it is quiet evident but still I liked the concept a lot. Two musical notes are bent in a way to make a heart and and headphones. The softness of this logo expresses “Love for Music
