Being a Female, What is your Clothing Style?

Minimalism in graphic design is a creative and highly innovative art form. The best designs are ones that convey optimum message through minimum design elements. This is because most of the viewers have limited power of understanding the information revealed to them. Hence, this task of saying more with less proves the creativity and aptitude of a graphic designer.

However, the issue with the concept of minimalist design trend is that, if not used correctly, can leave ambiguity and vagueness in the minds of audience. It should not be used as a method of saving time and procrastination. Rather, it should be applied by graphic designers to add clarity and clearness to a project. My today’s collection accurately reflects the notion of minimalism through creative minimalist movie posters. These funny but precisely designed posters explain the entire plot of blockbuster movies using only one or two relevant elements.

For those of you who have heard of these blockbuster movies will interpret these minimalist posters instantly. Regardless, you are going to enjoy these 25 funny and creative movie posters:

    Fantastic post with some absolutely fantastic designs. I love the use of simple vector illustrations to sum up a film so beautifully and simply. Designing simpleness can be an extremely tricky task. Out of all of the outcomes featured, I feel that the Godfather is the best. It sums up the atmospheric nature of the film and imposing nature of the characters in one simple image.

    Cool, i like the Godfather poster

    Love the Titanic poster, makes it look like a toy boat compared to the iceberg!

    These minimalist posters are great! I wish more movie companies would take this approach when creating movie posters for their movies because it leaves more to the imagination. Sometimes less is more is a good thing. I heard that FIDM has a great graphic design program and they teach students how to create all kinds of cool merchandise, including movie posters. Thanks for sharing!

    The Titanic and the Silent Hill posters are the two most accurate poster’s in this blog entry. Well, that’s what I think.

  1. David On January 30th, 2012 at 6:37 am

    Particularly like Karate Kid – very playful and fun – and Titanic – shows you the full picture, of what the people on the boat cannot. Actually very effective and unsettling

    Good art and good sense of creativity. Movie posters are a form of advertisement and their purpose is to make you want to go see the movie.

  1. New Web Templates On February 1st, 2012 at 5:10 am

    Fantastic collection, all of these movie posters are superb, i like most two posters, Butterfly Effect and 2 Days in Paris! its hidden and wonderful design!

    I guess I’m more biased toward minimalist-style designs with a more clever play on imagery (like much of Olly Moss’s work), but to me, a lot of these posters just come across as… lazy, not to mention unprofessional.

    Yes, some are executed well (I like the Godfather, Titanic, & Paranormal Activity), but many of the others simply consist of an image that required little/no imagination to conceive, not to mention the execution is sub-par.

    For example, with the Snow White or the TMNT posters, even if the designer(s) decided to use that same unimaginative imagery (really? an apple? how long did it take to come up with that, eh?), if they were at least executed in a way that showed more competency with creating a good overall composition, or were just simply more visually engaging in general, I might find myself liking them a lot more. (No, slapping a texture on a bad poster does not instantly make it “engaging.” Also, what’s with the same folded-paper texture used in half of these designs?)

    Really, truly excellent minimalist poster designs exist. These are not them, sorry. Do yourselves a favor and do a quick google search of “minimalist poster design” – more than half of the image results are far better than most of what is listed here.

    Sorry. I couldn’t contain my rant. I feel like bad minimalist poster design is the equivalent of your neighbor saying her grandson is a graphic designer because he downloaded Photoshop.

    I’m disappointed, and I agree with K. Marie that there is nothing mind-blowing here.

    None of these makes me want to watch any of these movies again. Shouldn’t a good movie poster inspire you to do that at least?
