Rhythm of the Reggae | Finland

Rhythm of the Reggae consists lively abstract design and typography with a message “Reggae from Jamaica to the world with love”. Elements twine together with warm and vivid color scheme. Poster is made by using Adobe Illustrator.
Reggae was a whole new music genre for me and with my poster I wanted to describe and reflect what I hear in reggae and what learned about it through my design process. I wanted to transfer the rhythm, the movement and the warm feeling to the viewer through colors, design and typography.

STING | United States

2nd of 4 portrait posters I’ve created for this contest so far. Because the theme is being the ‘Messages from Jamaica” I’ve decided to craft a series of posters briefly based on a mail-stamp format. This year my beloved 66-year-old British songwriter STING returned to his reggae roots by making a reggae album with Shaggy. He’s the magic behind a 70s rock-reggae band The Police. “Message in a Bottle’ being a perfect example of the reggae influence which he wrote while spending time in Jamaica nearly 30 years ago. I wouldn’t pretend I didn’t do my best on this portrait in hopes of getting a poster that’s nothing but epic and delicious to all the emotional taste buds.
