Project: Jamie Cullum: A Man in Motion / Spreads design [College project]

I was given the task to design a four page spread for an article on Jamie Cullum's music.
Jamie Cullum is an English piano player and composer who re-creates traditional jazz pieces with a modern touch. He is often known for his unconventional performance style.
For this project my goal was to graphically represent the artist's music and personality. The use of a grid to set all the text elements and the use of the very inpersonal Helvetica font, gave the design the structure needed to be juxtaposed by the more organic and colorful blobs that surround the artist's portrait. This intended contrast draws a parallel with Jamie Cullum's unique approach to cover some of the most traditional Jazz tunes.
