Movie Posters, Stripped Down to Their Essence

Graphic design and advertising is a complex and chancy endeavor. Poorly done, it creates schlock that can actively repel customers, but done well, it can create evocative designs that resonate with the audience and become pieces of popular culture in their own right.

Redditor “Join_You_In_The_Sun” took 80 high resolution scans of different movie posters and removed all text — logos and all. Even shorn of their logos, each poster is both evocative and iconic.

Take a look:

The gallery below, though extensive, includes less than half of his posters. You can find the rest At The Link!
