This is a poster made with love, starring my dog named Twiinky, which was very helpful to be able to transmit on the poster that you can enjoy this musical genre regardless of who you are, because reggae is expressed from the heart to which it opens to listen to it and enjoy it.
No matter the genre, music takes a big role in bonding people all over the world together, music can express emotions and meaning that can be shared and make other understand the message that the artist is trying to convey easier, able to spread the message worldwide. That is what my illustration is about, Reggae music and its message are being shared to the world, creating a difference and, spreading love globally from people to people sharing music to their friends/ family/ public.
The lion, the dove symbolizing peace and the text elements of reggae music were integrated into the design of the poster of reggae music festival. Red, yellow and green, representing the colors of Jamaica, were used as the theme colors. The design showed the good times brought by music and peace and people’s longing for a better life.
A type-based atmospheric Dancing Poster is another way I’m exploring the Reggae phenomenon. This Poster isn’t afraid to get dirty, minimal and explore a literal twist from the center outwards. The challenge was to capture a very particular vibe and aesthetic with no other visuals but letters and textures. The backdrop is the beginning of 80s – me sitting in a sunny living room in my birth town Riga, being 3 years old, playing with the swedish cubes, retro music on the background. I’m happy! I love this design, brings me back to that moment.
This is a typographic poster design. In the poster it simply gives the message `Reggae Music Will Make you happy’ in a creative design. So, the message is that Reggae music is a therapy that can change a person’s mood into happy. The ultimate message from the poster to the world is, whatever mood you’re on, whatever situation you’re in, listening to reggae will makes you happy. With happiness there is peace.
Colors used are the colors of reggae culture.
We’re Jammin is a poster that was inspired by the works of Keith Haring and other line artists.
While I was creating this poster, i felt really inspired by the little prince story from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry book. I wanted to tell, that reggae world is like a different planet, is something that is always near us and its always somewhere close, doesn’t matter where you are, in which part of our planet. Reggae music is something unique, something like from a different universe, but in the same time feels so natural, like the beat of our hearts. It’s teaching us how to be better persons, like the little prince does.
Let’s feel reggae,feel happy and love.
The composition is radial, showing the center guitar. Refering to the classic scene in the animation work, the birth of Lion King Simba, the baboon holding up the guitar, representing the king of music.
This is how Reggue resonates inside my eardrums
