Abstract

Upon personal reflection, I have discovered that economic, cultural, and social issues have become very important in my life. As an Iranian graphic designer, I used current events and responded to Iranian stories to reflect that people’s problems anywhere in the world affect other people’s lives worldwide. My thesis investigation aims to reveal the global connection with commodities by focusing on Iran’s economic inflation to create a conceptual and visual representation of impacted consumables. Persian rugs and tile designs are the centers of the culture and symbols of the Iranian people. I used graphic design to illustrate tiles utilizing economic consumables, Persian typographic patterns, and geometric style. I shared a strategy regarding chaos theory and fractals that challenges the audience to contemplate commodities and perceive the worldwide connection and direct and indirect impacts of each other.
