North Sea Jazz

Motion + Posters

North Sea Jazz is an annual 3 day Jazz festival that is held in Rotterdam, Netherlands. It is known to be the biggest indoor jazz festival in the world that showcases different genres of jazz music spanning across all eras.

This project was aimed at creating promotional visual expressions such as posters, banners and short animated clips for the festival. The animated short was played on the large facade of the Rotterdam Ahoy building, during the time of the festival.

Visual expressions for the festival— different kinds of type treatments representing the wide spectrum of jazz played at the festival.

The animated clip was displayed on the facade of Rotterdam Ahoy. The clips were further played during the festival that took place in July 2019.

Project done at Willem de Kooning Academy under the guidance of Ronald Vierbergen & Roger Teeuwens.
