  • The Vanguard Jazz Orchestra is very much a "vanguard" bunch. They are a progressive and modern day big band with a unique history. Since big bands aren't as common today as they once were, I wanted to focus on showcasing the big band aspect of VJO using hyperbole to further emphasize this point. Throughout my process I was very inspired by vintage jazz posters and because VJO has had such a dynamic history and progressive nature, I wanted to take a modern twist on vintage jazz posters to allude to both the past and the present while catering to a young and older audience.
