Had to pleasure of being asked to design the Jazz Band Concert program for the award winning Bands Of Santiago Sharks (BOSS). The concert consists of 3 jazz bands and 2 bands from Riverside City College.
The don’t have set logo or cover header that they wanted to use. We chose this font that resembled the keys of a piano, giving it that ‘musical’ feel.
Our challenge was photographs. Since this is the first Jazz Concert of the season we had no photographs of the bands performing. To get around this wall, I was able to shoot some rehearsals. Due to the band not being dressed in their tuxedos I chose to shoot close-ups of the instruments with a hint of faces, in some. This gave the ‘feel’ on a concert without having prior access to a concert. Some of the photographs can be seen at 3 Penguins Photography.
The cover is 4-color glossy whereas the content is grey-scale.
This program is very important to parents of these young musicians. These a memory keepsakes so making sure that everyone’s names are not only included but also spelled correctly is paramount. Detail is VERY important.
