Minimal Madness

I thought i’d add another feature section concerning some graphical works….after all, this is about photography AND design ;) About a year ago i fell in love with the minimal movie poster concept, or “minima” as i like to call it. You know, movie posters with maybe a picture or some words that sum up a movie in its entirety. Maybe it would be a key scene in the movie or perhaps a famous quote. I tried my hand at it and got some, if any, positive feedback, including a feature on Red Bubble. Anyway, here are some of the best minimal movie posters designed by users of Red Bubble (i should look further afield for future features) that i have come across and hope you enjoy them as much as i do. Just click on the image to be taken the user’s page. Please note that each piece is subject to copyright by the artists. Enjoy :)

  1. Stevie, I’m Megan Romo (the Forrest Gump print designer) and I just wanted to thank you for posting about my work. As you well know, a designer lives for that kind of validation. Thanks!
