These posters were made for The Folly's Jazz Series. The theater held a contest and my Joshua Redman Quartet poster was chosen to be used. Each poster is specific to each artist. The background images are used to show the personality of each artist. Also, the repetition of the names depicts the rhythm and improvisation of jazz.
My process started with me making collages out of paper. Then I took pictures of my collage materials. I used those pictures as my backgrounds. I made a pattern because the repetition in jazz creates a pattern. I made the pattern out of the artists name because how personal and individual jazz is
I tried to convey the unique style of the artist in each poster.
The large size of the poster allowed me to exaggerate the contrast of the names.
