Description
Student project : Design a poster for the concert of your choice.
  • Buena Vista Social Club
    Poster design for infamous Carnegie Hall Concert circa 1998
  • Poster design for the Buena Vista Social Club concert held at Carnegie Hall in 1998.

    The poster is inspired by vintage cigar box design and vintage travel posters. As Cuba is a country (in 1998) which had remained relatively unchanged with time, I sought to use these elements to convey Cuba's eternal nature, regarding both Cuba's sense of place as well as the artistic traditions of Cuban music and people.

    The star, arrangement of elements and color scheme from the Cuban flag are also found in the poster, and help to reinfoce this sensibility.
