Beijing 2008 poster design

This was the final project of the last semester for Illustration class. Our task was to design the poster for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.
Before I designed this poster, I intended to have a strong concept instead of just a normal painting with good execution. Then I decided to focus on the idea of the slogan, ‘One World, One Dream’.
The Olympic Games is the dream of every athlete in the world. It is not just about winning medals in the Olympics but it is about participation. The Olympics is just like a jigsaw puzzle to me. Everybody plays a part in it and the Olympic Games cannot be held if any piece of the puzzle is missing. With this idea, I try to promote the team spirits, sportsmanship and unity in the games.
This is done with acrylic on gesso, with two weeks of research and development, and two weeks of execution.

That's amazing!
I think the concept would have been a little bit stronger if you had made the hands/arms different in skin color or if you somehow showed the beautiful cultural diversity that exists in the games, but as it is... Great work!

thanks alot! yes i did think about that. i tried making the hands in different tones to show different races but it was not very obvious.. but u cant see what race are those hands anyway so i think it should be ok..
