A few months ago I participated to a contest to design inaugural poster competition for the Don’t Miss a Beat Jazz Festival in Jacksonville Florida, happening this upcoming July 24th 2021.
Although my design was not selected, I wanted to share it and explain my creative process.
It was one of my first time creating with very specific directives, and I found it fun to do so!
I wanted to celebrate women’s contribution in Jazz and that is why drew a lady playing trumpet.
Her pose is a “clin d’oeil” to Miles Davis iconic pose, and her hair the shape of the city borders.
The background was inspired by Jacksonville flag.
Check out the pictures below!
