Minimalist Posters of Pixar Films

                    Designer Wonchan Lee, created a series of posters of Pixar’s most popular movies. These posters were very minimalistic. I loved how each poster had an eye-catching color with a pair eyes or a mouth that represented a specific character from their films. I thought it […]
