Mardi Gras Poster

Illustration, 2017

This Mardi Gras poster is an ad for official Mardi Gras festivities in the city of New Orleans. The brief for this project included requirements that there be a float, crowds of partygoers, and buildings.

I used a flat style and abstract shaped to present a different take on the Mardi Gras scene. The buildings serve as leading lines to draw the viewer to the bright colors and imagine themselved listening to the jazz band featured prominently up front. The large sun and moon float serves as a focal point and emphasizes that Mardi Gras is a party all day and all night!
