Poster Monday: The 21st Ankara International Jazz Festival
Yalçın Demirkıran, was born in 1983 in Mersin, which is located in the south of Turkey. He is our Poster Monday designer of the day. Yalçın has a bachelor degree in graphic design and a master degree, he now studies a doctorate (proficiency in arts) at Hacettepe University Faculty of Fine Art in Ankara. He also works as a research assistant at the same university. Yalçın is interested in typographic solutions in poster design, editorial design in the graphic design field, book design, and also the reflection of deconstructive theory in graphic design.
The 21 Ankara International Jazz Festival often attracted a number of experimental jazz groups from the northern European countries. Yalçın’s poster, which was designed in this way, was intended to bring the warm side of experimental jazz music to the cold climate side of northern Europe. “The idea was to bring the two concepts to the foreground. Experimental digital jazz and the cold climate of northern Europe. When it comes to jazz music, I decided to use trombones from instruments that came to mind first. But the use of trombones also reflected the experiment, the character concept. When I deconstructed the instrument, I used a trombone and cut off the vector element” says Yalçın. The poster shows that the parts the listener heard with the experimental concept “were not mistaken or correct, could not be analyzed correctly or incorrectly. At the same time, the writing character was determined to reflect a digital form. The participation of experimental jazz musicians in Northern Europe was expressed by using cold colors throughout the design.”
