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.
