One of the Dutch postcard publishers is Boomerang Cards. They ‘hosted’ multiple ongoing design competitions in which they invite amateur and professional designers to participate. Not so much for financial gain but for ‘eternal fame’.
The competitions are not only initiated by Boomerang itself, but also include assignments from companies. One of those assignments was designing a ‘Giel Jazz’ CD cover. A compilation of jazz songs, composed by the well-known Dutch radio DJ Giel Beelen.
The illustration was drawn by hand in Adobe Illustrator using a Wacom tablet and edited afterwards in Adobe Photoshop.
