Back in February, we talked about the incredibly minimalist movie posters from Nick Barclay. And now, Sweden-based graphic designer Viktor Hertz has followed it up with his own version of vibrant minimalism in movie posters – and the results do tickle our geeky fancy. How so? Well, the artist has ingeniously showcased the gist of the said movies in just two frames, and quite aptly his collection is touted as two-frame pictogram movie posters.
Hertz can already boast of some major experience in the field of graphic designing, with his previous freelancing gigs being associated with clients like Ray-Ban and Uppsala International Short Film Festival. But this time around, in his own words he wanted to do something different –
I’ve been working with pictograms since I started doing graphic design. However, this time I wanted to come up with a completely new concept- so, I tried to depict movies in just two still frames. Think of it as an extremely short film, summarizing the story and visualizing the changes the characters go through.
And the good news is – his ‘short film’ pictogram movie posters are all ready to make their retail debut, if the ongoing Kickstarter project is successful. So, if interested, you can take a gander at the crowdfunded project here, with early bird pledges starting from kr100 (around $12).
