This assignment was an advertisement for a series of concerts based on the works of "Jelly Roll" Morton, Mary Lou Williams, and Charlie Parker. To inform the public, we were to create a set of three posters to interest potential concert-goers.
While conceptualizing this project, I wanted to emphasize both the rapid and delicate motion of hands playing jazz as well as the narrative of each performer making a name for themselves through music.
My solution was to make the hands appear to be in motion while playing the instrument the composer was famous for. The bright colors and fun nature of the poster plays on the feelings in each person's style of jazz.
