We’ve been thought not to judge a book by its cover, but in the movie industry, the poster represents the movie and this is why studios invest resources in presenting the movie in the best light possible.
Pete Majarich is an artist who appreciates simplicity and he decided to make 365 minimalistic movie posters, one for every day in the year. He shares them on his profiles on Tumblr and Instagram, where he has built a solid fan base. The result is a delightful collection of minimalist designs that capture the spirit of the movie and show that it’s possible to create iconic posters without the usual clichés.
Actually, the posters are so attractive that they could serve as decoration in your living room, so the artist is also selling them. With his work, Majarich demonstrates that great ideas can happen when artists get out of the established creative margins and expand them beyond their redundant mediocrity. Elements as simple as film frames, white backgrounds or symbolic compositions make the posters more eye-catching and make you want to know more about the movie.
