Let's face it; movie posters are, by nature, a hit-or-miss art form. And hey, it's not easy. Boiling down the core elements that make a movie great into a one-sheet graphic, well - that's daunting stuff. Often the key to success with design is similar to efficient writing: less is more.
Inspired by the simple iconic poster, freelance photographer and designer Viktor Hertz has created a series of posters that strip down some classic (and some not so classic) films to their most simplistic. Using pictograph forms, Hertz tells you everything you need to know about the film in stark black and gray. He calls then “Pictogram Movie Posters.” We call them awesome. Here are six he’s recently posted.
