I really like how the second one has the bird inside the microphone. Very cool, nice work! I also like how you have a good amount of white space.
I think the second concept is definitely the strongest out of the bunch. The idea of the "bird in the cage" definitely seems to evoke thought of the jazz age and definitely goes with the singer's musical atmosphere. I think it would be really interesting if you cropped the image in a bit closer so that the cage / microphone was closer to the viewer and that it took a second to realize that the cage was actually a microphone as well. Great start!
Monica,Concept 1This one has a unique vintage style. However, the type is not playing in harmony with your artwork.Concept 2I luv the direction you are going with this composition. It looks like you have your form/shape of your artwork down – now just need to employ some color to the comp. The typeface works, but I’m curious if there is another one that fits better?Concept 3This has a distinctive approach. Hmm, maybe she could use this for the backside of her business card. ~ (kidding)Type StudiesLook great! This is exactly what I was looking for. Great type studies too.Color StudiesThis is right on! It would be interesting if you applied 2 or 3 different color palettes to your concept 2 to see which establishes the tone/style the best.Moving forward: If you agree that Concept 2 is the strongest of your concept family; then move forward with further development on it for Wednesday. For Wednesday, bring a print (8.5 x 11 or 11x17) of your concept.
I think concept 1 and 2 are the strongest. Concept 2 is intriguing and very visually appealing. It captures the viewers attention and the bird gives a personality to the artist instead of being just a generic jazz poster.
