Anything with a dash of minimalism catches my attention. Especially the large number of minimalist
ic movie poster designs that float around on the internet. I have stumbled across tonnes of posters and advertisements that make use of this style. I wasn’t long before I became a fan. Today I decided to give it try. So during my exam week, I started something called – Film On Paper. Ladies and gentlemen I now give you - 30 Days of Minimalistic posters based on – movies and television shows. In a period of one month I successfully pulled off not 30 but in fact 42 posters. However I have chosen the best 30 of my designs. This personal project took me one month to put together.
For those who are new to this concept of Minimalism. It is defined – “Minimalism describes movements in various forms of art and design, especially visual art and music, where the work is set out to expose the essence, essentials or identity of a subject through eliminating all non-essential forms, features or concepts.” There were so many movies I wanted to try but sadly the concept that came to mind was already illustrated by another artist.
Project – Poster Designs :Print
Style - Minimalism
Tools – Illustrator / Photoshop
Project brief : What I have done is basically taken 25 movies and 5 series and designed a poster for them. Each of the poster have one element that clearly portrays the story of the movie. Thus picking the most relevant scene, object or character. Also I have tried to incorporate colors that are relevant to the movie.
