Movie posters go minimal

This was a warm-up exercise we’ve done with Floda31, in the workshop of communication during my study at Advanced Design Program in Umeå Institute of Design. The brief was given out: “Design a movie poster in black and white using only a symbolic illustration and the title of the film.” We worked with the following movies; 127 hours, The Matrix, Terminator, Moulin Rouge, Toy Story and Inception. This brief was inspired by the series of posters for popular TV series by Exergian.

The exercise was done in a short time and was full of fun and brain-refreshing. The idea of using symbolic illustration in black and white enabled us to focus at the most essential part of the movies from which everyone got their unique impression.
