Designing the Faith: Print

October 24, 2011, in Articles > Art & Creative Works, by

There’s a small army of creative Baha’is who labour hard to communicate the message of the Faith on screen and paper. The Designing the Faith series showcases some of their ingenious work in film, fashion, the internet, architecture and more.

When you’re inviting your neighbour’s kid to a children’s class, Comic Sans on coloured paper won’t instill a sense of trust in their mum. Your charming smile may, but a well-designed invitation will give you an extra edge to communicate confidence, experience, and maybe even joy and creativity.

In the fourth part of our Designing the Faith series, we look at outstanding examples of color on paper.
