Oklahoma State University MFA Fall 2019

This project is exploring how Farsi and English type interacts with one another in printed media (poster). This practice is trying to show the flexibility of these two languages and how their existence in one composition can complement each other. Rumi's poems are the main and repeated content in all posters. Various techniques and juxtapositions were investigated in this project. The result is a well organized chart showing how each technique and language can sit next to one another. 

Rūmī, in full Jalāl al-Dīn Rūmī, also called by the honorific Mawlānā, is the greatest Sufi mystic and poet in the Persian language, famous for his lyrics and for his didactic epic Mas̄navī-yi Maʿnavī (“Spiritual Couplets”), which widely influenced mystical thought and literature throughout the Muslim world.
