Montreux Jazz Festival China has just revealed the winner of the 2022 Poster Design Competition!
Based on the selection of our professional jury and 8,500 valid public votes, the work by Chinese female artist Lewei Wu will be the official poster for the second edition of the Montreux Jazz Festival China, which will take place in October Hangzhou.
The poster uses the color texture of music score papers to create a warm yellow tone. The stave in the middle is bent into a bridge of music, in accordance with the theme of this year’s competition “Bridge”. Below the bridge, the English letters of the Montreux Jazz Festival China 2022 are stitched together to form a crowd of people, reflecting the lively and happy feeling of the music event. The red and black colors are used to show a combination of pureness and enthusiasm, just like the mix of serious oriental music and passionate western jazz music. Like a curving line, it develops infinity and aims to bring people a sense of freedom, hope, and joy.
The poster’s artist Lewei Wu is a Chinese graphic designer who specializes in visual communication design. Her aim was to convey a feeling of warmth and peace in uncertain times, using music as a cultural bridge to bring people together in celebration of life and love.
