Born on the 16th of December 1980 in Karaj/Iran, Homa Delvaray, is a graduate of Tehran university, Faculty of Fine Arts, BA in Visual Communications, 2006.
Since graduation her professional career has developed from freelancing as a graphic designer and art director to managing social and cultural projects in the community. Her strength in designing unique 3D typography with her brand of uncommon style of the use of traditional elements with modern elemental forms and substances, to produce a maximalist multi-voiced presentation, delighting the senses in an unusual/modern/ethnic work, has become her trademark in recent years.
Homa has in collaboration with international agencies and studios such as Ogilvy & Mather, Los Angeles and Eps51 graphic design studio, Berlin, produced and exhibited many of her works on an international scale, that have frequently being mentioned in relevant publication magazines and websites around the world. She is also an experienced journalist and a teacher.
