Announcing the Launch of the Online Archive of Art Director Babak Radboy.
Babak Radboy has been the creative director of the Bidoun Magazine and Bidoun Projects, an award winning collective devoted to art, culture and change in the Middle East. While at Bidoun he has had time to produce only one commercial work: the music video “POWER” for Kanye West, for which he was nominated last weekend for an MTV Video Music Award for best art-direction.
