My name is Mehdi Naghavi, and I was born in Iran. I currently reside in Istanbul.
My passion lies in calligraphy and drawing Persian and Arabic words and letters.
My journey began in my twenties when I was a student in a religious school. While learning to read the Quran by heart, I found myself with ample time to explore other books on philosophy and poetry.
Before long, I was immersed in a world of captivating terminology. I started to delve deep into the meaning of each and every word, captivated by the profound significance they held.
As a designer, my goal is to infuse each word, particularly names, with a unique perspective and a special character.
Unlike English, Persian, and Arabic letters are typically connected. It took me years to muster the courage to break free from this convention and write Persian and Arabic words separately, yet still maintain readability and clarity.
