He is also the author of “Musical Posters”, which was published in 2010, and was the co-founder of ADG, the Brazilian Association of Graphic Designers.
Swiss graphic designers Bruno Monguzzi and Niklaus Troxler held exhibitions in honor of Momayyez in Tehran in 2010 and 2011.
French graphic designer Pierre Bernard had also commemorated Momayyez by holding a showcase in Tehran in 2008.
