Vahid started his career studying the Thulth and Naskh scripts in 1982 and after nearly ten years of training he began teaching in Tehran art schools from 1991. Within a year, he was producing significant work in two additional fields: historical calligraphy research in a range of media (ceramics, coins, plaster and stone, as well as manuscripts) and contemporary type design.
