Polish artist Michal Krasnopolski has created a wonderful series of minimalist movie posters for classic films that are each based on a very simple grid. The grid consists of “a circle and two diagonals inscribed in a square.” His full collection of 26 posters are available to purchase online from Society6.
It surprised me how many posters I could create based on this very simple approach. There’s an enormous strength in simplicity; the fewer elements, the more we engage our imagination.
