Alacran Group is a new media company with offices in Miami, Jamaica and London. The group encompasses one record label, two recording studios, live events, films and a foundation. Kaya Fest is an uplifting two-day music and cultural festival presented by the Marley family and the Bob Marley Foundation.
The Alacran and Bob Marley Foundations work together to elevate Jamaica while empowering young children with tools and resources for building a better society.
This project was designed to promote the multimedia entertainment company, Alacran Group, as an official partner of the music and awareness festival, Kaya Fest, while sharing positive messages with people of all walks of life and all ages around the world. I incorporated positive messages from Bob Marley’s songs in an elegant manner, aligning with my client’s tastes and branding.
“One Love” was one major message. I merged this statement of love and unity with the powerful closing tagline “Empowering Young Lives for Life”. This also made “One Love” ideal for describing this collaboration between the Bob Marley Foundation and the Alacran Group. This message extends beyond this project to connect with their overarching philosophy that we are all connected as one true family on Earth.

We also promoted the collaboration between the Bob Marley Foundation and the Alacran Foundation by sharing the message “One Love”
While this project centered around the Kaya Fest event, it made an impact that extended far beyond the festival grounds. Both the Bob Marley Foundation and the Alacran Foundation united to promote art, music and sports while successfully elevating the people of Jamaica.
