Dubai Jazz Festival
Student & Personal Project
After going to the Jazz Festival, the music and the colors were quite inspiring. I have always been impressed by the old illustrated jazz posters. Hence I wanted to integrate vibrant colors with musical instruments using an illustrative look in order to promote the Dubai Jazz Festival. After going through a hefty amount of process work with different illustration styles and imagery, I was still not convinced that the imagery was reflecting the feeling of Jazz properly.
In the end, I decided to combine photography and illustration in colorful layouts. Instruments were the hero of each poster and each one was displayed in front of a curtain. To have more space clean space of typography, the curtain was pulled to the side and a wood texture was added.
