Villa Zebra is a children's museum on contemporary art and spoken word. In the exhibition ‘Sea de Zee’ (See the Sea) children explore contemporary artworks about the sea, starting with a sunny day on the beach and ending in the dark deep sea. Fantasizing about, among other things, the harbor, plastic soup and sea monsters.
The Villa Zebra museum is about making up stories, imagination and curiosity. The poster also stimulates those goals of the museum. Look twice and wonder what kind of animals you see among the waves. Take a even closer look and read the poem 'sea monsters' by one of the artists: “the flood took me to the open sea the waves got higher and higher and I slowly submerged I held my breath”
The illustration is made up of clippings that are left behind by children in the craft room of the museum.
I see it as a challenge to work on a design for children that is attractive but not childish. It is important to take children serious.
The result is a poster that makes you curious about the exhibition and stimulates your imagination. A cheerful design with a double layer - what happens under the water surface?
