“Reggaeneration” | Mexico

El Reggae se transmite por generaciones y fluye como la sangre en nuestros corazones. Nos hace querer heredarlo para que perdure. Crea un lazo intangible en el mundo sin importar distinciones, unificandonos para convertirnos en uno mismo. Así logramos ser más los que lo compartimos con los que amamos.

Reggae Messages of Jamaica | United States

Because the theme is being the ‘Messages from Jamaica” I’ve decided to take it quite literally and craft a poster that shows exactly that – Jamaican flag used as a mail delivered envelope. A Red-billed streamertail (Trochilus polytmus) bird is a national treasure of Jamaica. This one is part of a series of posters I’ve created for this contest that is briefly based on a mail-stamp format. It’s pretty confident and not afraid to appear as a minimal (minimalist) and simplistic in its appearance. I work with visual elements and type which I treat similarly – as an element. I’d like them all to flow in unison and compliment each other to create a perfectly balanced poster.

ONE BOB | United States

4th 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. I wouldn’t hide the fact I worked extra hard on crafting a portrait using a sophisticated color-scheme and all my expertise in a portrait field to achieve nothing but epic and delicious poster to all the emotional taste buds. Recently my graphic art was picked as a BEST OF BOB MARLEY tracks album cover working for a Tuff Gong record company he established which now belongs to Ziggy Marley. I’ve gone through tons of BMs photography. The one black & white photograph I worked from as a base for this design stood out to me because of an emotion he conveys and a smoky eyes which was a challenge to re-create in color. The dots in a top right corner translates as REGGAE in Braille.
