Manchester Jazz Festival Project

The brief was given to us at the Batley School of Art to create a range of promotional material for the Manchester Jazz Festival, which is a festival held in various venues in Manchester each year.

I came up with the idea to create the instruments using shapes to catch the attention of potential viewers, by using instruments that are associated with jazz music. This concept was then applied to a range of promotional items and outdoor advertising examples.

Gouka Promotional Poster

My original promotional posters, with inspiration taken from a film by Studio Ghibli called “Laputa, Castle in the Sky”.

For the poster I used hand-drawn elements and paint, which I then scanned in and brought into illustrator where I added type.
