I'm Mehdi Naghavi. I was born in Iran, and now I'm living in Istanbul.

Calligraphy and drawing Persian/ Arabic words and letters are what I do.

All my story started in my 20s, when I was a student in religious school, there while learning how to read Quran by heart, I had plenty of time to study other books on philosophy and poetry.
Shortly after I found myself lost between lots of wonderful terms. Then I began to think about the meaning of every single word. Somehow I was captivated by the deep sense of each one.

I'm a designer who tries to bring a unique perspective and special character to every word most importantly the names.

letters Unlike English, in Persian and Arabic are attached. It took me years to pluck up my courage to break this rule and write Persian and Arabic words disparately but still readable and clear.
