Last week, I finalized plans to show two parts of a three-part documentary on Forough Farrokhzad ("Sard-e Sabz" & "Jaam-e Jaan" by Nasser Saffarian. See Dorna Kahzeni's "The last part").

The show is going to be in Berkeley on October 6. Which is less than three weeks away. Which is a disaster: there's little time to get people to come to see it. But hey... I want to do it! It's a great documentary and I may never get a chance to show it later.

Last Thursday I emailed Sadaf Kiani in Tehran (I really like her work) and asked if she could design the promotional postcard. As I waited for her reply, I thought I should work on a design myself, just in case Sadaf was unable.

I went to Google and searched for Forough's pictures. I liked this one. I changed the color from black to red. Added "FOROUGH" in Helvetica font in the bottom. Not the BEST, but simple and to the point. I love her hair, looks like it's on fire:
