24 hours in Baku Azerbaijan

Baku is the capital city of Azerbaijan, an old city, full of history and ancient architecture. So what would you do if you had 24 hours in Baku? Qatar’s inflight magazine Orxy covered Baku’s grounds, check out the modern buildings and the Icheri Sheher (the old city) so that you can make the most out of your time. As with all the “24 hours in” articles from Orxy they are accompanied by Patrick Hruby‘s city illustration. In his illustration he features the Azerbaijan State Philharmonica hall, Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center, the old city gate and lots more.

I haven’t seen a lot of design work from Azerbaijan but I was impressed when I saw the Gazelli Cosmetics packaging. The name Gazelli is inspired by an ancient Azeri from of lyrical poetry in praise of Beauty, Youth and Love. The illustrations featured on the packaging capture rural women of Azerbaijan. Gazelli hopes their product is an extension of hospitality in their poetic land of beauty.
