conceptual project: poster design, illustration


“I won’t be a rock star. I will be a legend.”
            -Freddie Mercury

Freddie Mercury was the lead singer of Queen and famous for his bold stage theatrics, extravagant rock-opera vocals and keen fashion sense. In keeping with his colourful personality, the designs for this art exhibition use bright, bold colours with accompanying bold fonts. One of the posters includes the God Mercury beside Freddie himself, showing the parallel between Freddie’s rock god status. All these elements encapsulates the essence of the memory we carry for Freddie Mercury. The accompanying illustrations are simple yet bold enough not to overshadow the overall mood of each piece.
