A guitar is made up of people’s head. People’s thoughts become colorful because of reggae. You can see the notes of red, yellow and blue are interspersed in the mind. There are small patterns on the strings running through it. You can find that it was the Jamaica flag. When you look far away, you can see that the core of the poster was constructed with the color of the Jamaica flag to celebrate the great Jamaican music!!
This poster is a manifestation of the song called Roots Rock Reggae from Bob Marley.
Reggae music blends all different cultures, which value lies in its rhythm and soul. The charm of reggae just like a storm, spreading quickly and strongly, leading people to enjoy life.
Above music, peace and love
reggae music, cheerful rhythm brings a relaxed feeling, through concise color and graphics, with a relaxed picture to convey the relaxed feeling of music.
Love is the only thing that unites all people from any corner of the world. And I wanted to use this particular communication channel to show that this LOVE precisely the Messages from Jamaica to the World. Love, Listen, Create.
I wanted to make a poster that is colorful, fun, powerful and full of story. That’s how I see reggae music as well. I think the most important message in reggae music is love for one another.
Colorful lines in the background represents the rhythm of the music and the warm feeling from listening it. Also you can see warmness spreading to the World from Jamaica. Big lion shows the strength and pride of reggae music culture.
Reggae music comes from everyday life, so I use the style of hand-painted graffiti to create the atmosphere. Electronic instrument is the soul of reggae, which makes the instrument active on the paper and causes the audience’s resonance.
Jamaican Sound System is one of many iconic symbols of Reggae Music and Nature. So I made a metaphor connecting iconic Jamaican Lion and infamous Jamaican Sound System. So I was thinking about every message what we heard gave us freedom and imagination to our mind and soul.
Reggae music is like flowers make people feel warm and see hope.
