F+S: PJ2

Schraivogel, Ralph
International Jazz Festival Zurich, 1989

In this poster for an International Jazz Festival, the repetition of the circular lines around the center image of ear create rhythm in the composition. These circular lines reflect a frequency , or sound waves. The lines at the bottom page are reminiscent to piano keys, the lines enhance the meaning of the event taking place which is the Jazz Festival. The designer use of lines ads to dimension, the front lines as mentioned previously resemble piano keys are in the foreground , while the circular lines are in the background. The circular lines in the background create a texture and draws attention to the imagery of the ear in the center.
