“Jazz washes away the dust of everyday life. “– Art Blakey


Jazz is a constant flow, flow of music in the soul. A connection of the senses in an indescribable way, merging them into a unique feeling.

My approach was to connect the letters of the word “JAZZ” as a multidimensional bridge composition with a memorable vibrant color palette. A bridge as foundation from the rich heritage of the festival to the newest editions. An audiovisual expression of the character of this event, it’s energy and groovy mood. Music in motion, both figuratively and literally.
