The Internet in Iran illustrated

Six content panels with general information about the current state of the Internet in Iran

October 3, 2012

Despite all the political, military and social situation, Iran seems to be trying to step up, when it comes to infographic production. A few weeks ago, we announced the first infographic event in Teeran, and now we bring you a project by designer Maral Pourkazemi, mapping the current state of Iranian Internet in a series of panels.

In his website, Maral talks about the project:

My master thesis is about the Iranian Internet. After months of research I designed this Infographic which contains six content panels. It starts with general informations about the Internet usage (1), goes on with the idea of a “Halal” or “national” Internet (2), shows two ways of how the Iranian user escapes the “Halal” Internet (3), a little part of the iranian Blogosphere showing what kind of blogs get filtered (4), going on with the sophisticated cyber repression (5) which is initiated by the paradox system of government (6).
