Until 2009, Arbors Records, the country's third largest all-jazz recording label, located in Clearwater, Florida, hosted a blow-out annual jazz party that they called "The March of Jazz" (the name of the event was changed in 2009 to the Arbors Records International Jazz Party).
At each of the events, special birthday commemorations were observed for some of the more elderly jazz musicians performing. In 2003, Arbors celebrated the 77th birthday of renowned jazz guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli. This is the special graphic that Latitude 28 Design and Market- ing was asked to design for the occasion.
This majority of this graphic was created in Adobe Illustrator®, but a photo of Bucky's own guitar was incorporated into the layout. The image was imported into Adobe Photoshop® to finalize shading, highlights and general color work.
