The entries are beautifully designed with minimalistic and abstract shapes, showing how less can be more. This style gives the posters a tasteful and modern appearance. Who knows, maybe this kind of movie poster design will be a trend in the future?
One could even argue that the design of some of these posters is superior to the original. Could these truly be a future trend in the entertainment world? Well, everyone thought Dippin’ Dots “trend of the future” ice cream was going to catch on, but it never did. But I have a hunch that, as more and more artists emulate the Apple approach to minimalism in advertising, this poster style will be adopted more and eventually permeate through all of Hollywood and perhaps Bollywood.
Do you think some of these posters are better than the original? If movie studios get wind of how popular these posters are, we could effect real change in the entertainment industry. The kind of change money can’t buy. The kind of change that can only be brought about by mobilizing the masses toward a singular goal: the revolution of movie poster art everywhere.
Just some food for thought. Check out this 2 minutes-video which features 35 movies in a similar minimalistic way.
