Design for newspaper ad for Advertising Design class.
Had to promote a cause or an event and I chose the Pittsburgh Jazz Live International Festival. I wanted to give it a jazzy feel and use the classic black and gold to represent Pittsburgh. I also wanted to pay homage to the city so I added a silhouette of the skyline and created the three rivers flowing from the trumpet.
This was my first time doing a graphic illustration of this style and am pretty pleased with the end result.
