Even though a history or even a codified short history of Modern Graphic Design in Iran has not been collected and documented so far, but clearly among the documents available and the remaining work scattered between the archives of individuals and organizations, a few influential and decisive events in the history of modern graphic design in Iran can be pointed out.

One of these events is the formation of The Children & Adolescents Intelligence Development Center which was founded in 1964 with the aim of creating opportunities for the expansion of the culture of reading and producing suitable books for Iranian children and adolescents. With the presence and cooperation of Iranian artists and intellectuals this center has been further expanded each day.

The Graphic Design Center of this organization also began work from approximately the same time. With the presence of artists such as : Farshid Mesghali, Abbas Kiarostami, Nooreddin Zarrinkelk, Morteza Momayez, Ebrahim Haghighi, Ali Akbar Sadeghi , and… it can firmly be said that the work created amongst them is a brilliant and lasting legacy for art history and graphic design in Iran.
