More in the non-Western design front.

Very cool project, though it makes me sad this is all only on social media so they don’t really own it and it’s not searchable. #ownyourdata

Highlighted examples pulled from It’s Nice That.

Palestinian Literature Series, New Culture House, 1989-1991, Cover design Mouneer Alshaarani

Getting some Secession vibes from that calligraphy. I usually worry that green and red is going to be Christmas-y but don’t feel that at all here.

International Fair of Damascus Posters, 1980, Design: Abdulkader Arnaout

This is rad and love the color palette. If you told me this was designed now I wouldn’t bat an eye. But can also see the 1980 in it 😉
