For this project, I was assigned to design a gig poster for a Charles Mingus concert.
I researched Charles Mingus’s music and life. Based on my research, I created an illustration of Mingus and his bass. Through the illustration, I showed the loneliness he had throughout his life and his passion of music. Then, I added typography. I used different colors based on the importance of the information and scale of the typography.
The complementary color of the piece makes the image read more clearly and the typography match with the illustration.
