The characters wear costumes from reggae music and express themselves in their own way. The background USES reggae red, yellow and green to make the whole picture full of reggae music. The fonts were designed to show people, fat and thin, high and low, listening to the rhythm of reggae.
Reggae The Voice Of Peace
Using the microphone and the symbol of peace (the artist’s own voice) and the symbolic design of sound vibrations with corporate colors and the overall look of a casual person who grows their hair high.
The idea for the poster came from reggae music’s positive influence on the world. Reggae brings people hope and happiness, but it’s also an important channel for bringing up difficult issues. In the poster Jamaica is the heart of a light bulb, that lights up the rest of the world and universe with its positive and energetic reggae music.
I used the colors of Jamaica’s three colors and I used a combination of thorn and mahogany to make the protest a musical.
I did a drawing of a rastaman representing the words through singing about freedom.
The idea of the design is mainly from the representative history of Bob Marley’s life. I am moved by the sacrificing and generous act of Bob Marley who had great courage to express his belief to the public with penetrating lyrics in his music and his real action taken to promote love, peace, respect and equality. The scene of joining the hands of two politicians, who were full of hatred with each other, impressed me the most. The poster, therefore, comes from this idea.
Regarding the poster, there are three instruments or music tools are easily observable. They are bass guitar, classical guitar and a microphone. These music tools represent Reggae as Reggae is created and performed with them.
Moreover, there are totally three people who stay on a music instrument respectively. The one in the middle is Bob Marley, who is at the top among three, saying that he is the most representative person in this movement and in promoting Reggae. I try to show the characteristic of Reggae’s hair cut in order to hint that who he is. The other two are the two politicians who are from different parties opposite to each other. However, they are both go towards Bob’s hug because of music.
In addition, most importantly, the colours of three people do mean something. the dark Bob and the white politicians come together means that Bob contributes a lot to motivate the integration of the blacks and whites in the past with Reggae.
Finally, there are three colour painted on the music tools, which represents that Reggae belongs to Jamaica.
Music rules the world.
Bob Marley sings about freedom, redemption and love in his music and signals it to the whole world. His guitar was a tool with which he influenced the world.
Using the color represented by Jamaican reggae music to complete the state of holding
guitar and touching strings, expressing the blessing of love and happiness for reggae music
Reggae music is not just a style, but a soul. The poster USES reggae’s most classic red, yellow and green colors and their classic elements to show the most authentic reggae attitude.
