Minimalist Poster Designs Using Pictograms to Summarize Film Plots

Lord of the Rings Shortology Poster

Italian designer Matteo Civaschi of the H-57 Creative Station made a wonderful series of minimalistic designs (similar to his history posters) that quickly summarize popular film plots by using simple pictogram timelines. Each was created to be a part of Life in five seconds, a book of “over 200 stories for those with no time to waste.” Poster prints and hardback copies of the book Life in five seconds (Amazon) are available to purchase online.
