I don’t know about you, but I love and appreciate smart minimalist design and I also really get a kick out of different takes on TV and film promotional materials, so my recent discovery of the Minimal Movie Posters Tumblr was a daymaker, to say the least. Kind of like a day when you’re craving ice cream and you go to your freezer to discover a pint of Haagen Dazs Dulce De Leche that you’d completely forgot you had in there. Or something like that — you know what I’m getting at.
Anyway, the site is run by an anonymous person with a talent for design who goes by the name of “Little Movie Nerd.” Some of the posters on the Tumblr are made by LMN, while the other posters are submitted by amateur and professional designers who were apparently born with the same genes for creativity and movie nerdness as the person running the blog, and the end result is some of the best fan art on the web.
With all of that said, I’ve put together a gallery of some of my favorite minimal movie posters after the jump. Included in the site’s collection are some TV posters, but I restricted this particular gallery to movies just for the sake of continuity. Enjoy.
