This weekend is Carnival Time, so we’re celebrating with this colourful number by Paula Cox. I love the movement in this poster, you can almost hear the music! I got in touch with Paula and asked her what inspired her design for the poster. She said “I was sketching at carnival and at the calypso competitions to capture the rhythms of the dancers in pencil lines and all the time listening to reggae as I refined the design for the final poster.”
Paula has also sent me some photographs of her with the posters.
What tunes would make a good soundtrack to this poster and get your toes tapping?
