Touraj Saberivand received Merit Award for 'Freedom of Language'
Being a Journalist is a hazardous way to live. Journalists go through a lot to get the news and write. They write not only for the audience, but for history and surely for enlightenment. I have designed this poster for my journalist friends. Meanwhile they were taking great risks in their career path.
The language of journalism is freedom, and because of that I have combined the dove of peace which is the symbol of freedom, with the pen, which is the very first and most simple tool of a journalist. This symbolic combination was done so that everyone could connect with the poster.
journalists, writers and poets have used this poster vastly in the medias and events of their associations.
Saberivand, 32, is a member of the Iranian Graphic Designers' Society. The young artist has participated in several local and international events, won some awards and designed the logos of many famous brands in Iran.
