Reggae makes integration | Hong Kong
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.
