    Atelier Martino&Jaña: 2011 Guimarães Jazz

Lovely, animal-based jazz festival posters from designers Atelier Martino&Jaña

Posted by Rebecca Fulleylove,

You don’t have to be a cool cat to enjoy jazz – well not the promotional posters for a jazz festival anyway. Designed by Atelier Martino&Jaña these posters for last year’s Guimarães Jazz in Portugal, bring together collaged animals crooning some sweet music and mismatched cut-out type to create a lovely, jumbled visual that mimics the erratic arrangement of notes heard in jazz. Teaming up with illustrator Alexsandra Niepsui they communicate everything perfectly in a way that avoids alienating those who perhaps aren’t as familiar with the genre. The rest of Atelier Martino&Jaña’s portfolio is a diverse mix encompassing a range of styles but it’s the posters that really blow our horns.
